MY STILL LIFE STYLE AND SYMBOLISM


Hanne Lore Koehler:

"I do enjoy variety in my painting as in my life. Although I love the fast moving splashing watercolor of action paintings, sometimes the detailed intricate work of a still life painting can be calming and rewarding as well. If you look closely, however, even my still life paintings show a hint of movement: the shadow of a flitting bird on a feeder behind a frosty window pane, a steaming cup of hot chocolate, a sparking fireplace, a trickling raindrop on the window pane, all suggest that life goes on. We may try to capture a moment but time is elusive. How quickly the sunlight streaming in through the window changes and shadows move!"

I absolutely love to paint! Ultimately, I hope this feeling of enjoyment is passed on to you, the viewer. In my still life paintings, I try to convey a feeling of contentment, of joy in life, of awe in insignificant details. I would be thrilled to see you step back and take in the complete vision letting your mind wander. It would thrill me equally to see you step closer to one of my paintings, to examine the image and recognize a symbolic component, detect a subtle metaphor, discover a fresh insight that had gone unnoticed.

I like to tell a wordless story with my paintings, bringing back memories, awakening a feeling, heightening the senses. For instance, the image of the sun streaming into a sleepy summer afternoon barn conjures up the musty smells of leather and fresh-cut hay, instantly bringing back your memories of just such an experience; the warm glow and sparking embers from a November cottage fireplace contrasting against the icy cold beyond a frosty windowpane can create a cozy atmosphere and feeling of contentment; the hanging life jackets, canoe paddles, fishing tackle, snowshoes stored in an Ontario cottage bunky can instantly evoke lazy summer days on a raft in a sun-drenched lake, happy sounds of children laughing, belly flop splashes, sizzling burgers on the barbeque, evening stories and sing-alongs around a bonfire."
