New York, NY, USA, June 11, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -Marie-Luise Quandt paints realistic still lifes using oils on canvas. Typically, she creates soothing backdrops of neutral white and off-white tones, and then gives her subjects accents of red and bright color to draw interest. Quandt is particularly interested in realistically portraying shapes and textures. “During the course of the last thirty-five years my painting has developed more and more in the direction of photorealism,” she explains. “If the beholder thinks he can peel the old paint from the door with his fingernail or if he tries to open it, then I am pleased.” Quandt is obsessed with the details in her work – the fine textures of thread, or the particular way light reflects from cherries, or the transparency of certain fabrics. Her passion is infectious, and the viewer is swept up into a world where beauty exists even in the little things.
Quandt lives and works in Germany. She has been running a painting school for several years, and is always excited to pass on her knowledge to others.
