Colours in their materiality and spirituality infuse and inspire the paintings of Sybille Hermanns. She has completed several projects of sacral art, riots of colour on church walls and windows, which brought her awards in 2002. Her auratic colour range depicts motifs of the sky or the sea. These artistic "colourscapes" are not as such naturalistic, but reproduce and evoke our own experiences and ideas.
Sybille Hermanns transposes the vastness and lightness of the horizon or the directness and immediacy of the ocean from within into a "lavish festival" of colours or paintings, which then become a "setting for a sensual and sublime viewing experience", as the German art historian Dr. Andrea Otte put it.
Sybille Hermanns, born in Osnabrück/Germany in 1963, studied art and religion at her hometown university and worked subsequently as a freelance artist. Additionally, she has lectured at several international academies of art and design and has had her work shown at a variety of exhibitions in Germany and abroad.
