Romana Brunnauer Artist Bio:

The award winning artist Romana G. Brunnnauer was born in Salzburg (Austria), studied, lived and worked in Munich (Germany). After University she started as a Writer and Creative Director for Conventional and New Media. She won a numerous prestigious awards throughout her career. In 2005 she moved to Lanzarote on the Canary Islands in Spain. Since 2006 Romana has been exclusively dedicated to visual arts. In her painting mode and artistic essence the artist feels connected to abstract expressionism e.g. the European Informel. Her form language remains open and at times she introduces sparsely figurative elements which cannot easily be defined. Artist's Statement: “My current work deals with people I encounter in online social networks. Every comment made online reveals something about the poster and I find myself asking: WHO ARE YOU? The answer lies in what is not said and what is not shown. That’s where I find a real sense of the person behind the statement – their own particular energy. I pick up on this energy and translate it onto canvas. I create abstract portraits which tell a story. I paint exclusively in acrylic. Depending on the person I am portraying, I will work breezily in with water diluted colour or impastos, using light or dark base colours. My imagery is abstract with specifically positioned, figurative elements. The lines could be read as Mandalas, continually threatening to overwhelm their borders. This means the painting cannot be approached in a rational manner. There is an initial turbulence which then ebbs away and allows for peace of mind where space is created for spontaneous insights to be revealed. Throughout the creative process and while painting, each portrait acts as a mirror for me and the same applies to those who view my work. If one is open to it, one can discover hidden depths in oneself.”
