A collage based on C.D. Friedrichs "der einsame Baum" and "Sweet Gwendolyne", a comic figure of Scharwel, who transformed the original "Gwendolyne" of the Bondage Artist John Willie into a skeleton version for the german band "Die Ärzte".
In my Collage Gwendolyne seems to be tied to Friedrichs famous tree and looks up to an early drawing of mine, a screaming, emryonal being. The romantic background is becoming black from left and right, where grey hills, meadows and a lying heart disappear slowly.
Chrössi Schnell, *1983 Goch Germany, studied art, theater and education in Essen. After completing her studies in 2013, she first worked in Mülheim a.d. Ruhr and Hanover. Today she works as a teacher of art and theater in Bocholt.
The landscape of her home on the Lower Rhine with many cows, flat land and the wide sky, in which one you can see a special sunset every evening, is an important source of inspiration. The modest circumstances of her childhood and the rural environment characterize the artist to this day and have produced her particular experimentation.
"Never stop! were the words of my lecturers Eberhardt and Buse after passing my exam at the University of Duisburg-Essen, which is why I always look for new challenges after my studies and work and I like to work with different materials and coloring. The repertoire of my work is therefore very broad and constantly expanding."
The artist donates a part of the proceeds of all sold paintings to NABU (Nature Conservation League Germany) as well as to the German Animal Protection League and Greenpeace.
