This is how the painter Anette Selle describes her work in her own words:

For a long time, the theme of "sea" has been artistically occupying me, with its vastness, infinity, freedom, depth, threat, primal force, and beauty. It is about the questions of perception and the confrontation with the meaning we assign to the surfaces of the world.

My sea motifs are placed in the present and thereby transcend the depth of space and time.

I am interested in the question of when applying color becomes autonomous and follows a plan? When is the point reached where the applied paint on the canvas becomes an image? When does the color material transform into an independent image? I ask myself such questions again and again during the painting process.

All questions are forgotten when my painting surprises me. Then the autonomy of the image is achieved. A very good feeling.

I want to create an art space in my paintings that allows the viewer the freedom to connect with their own reality.
