Through this collection, Drøschler embarked on a journey that transcends the tangible and navigates into the realms of spirituality. Each canvas becomes a portal to the metaphysical, devoid of any explicit representation or symbolism, allowing the viewer to immerse themselves in an ethereal experience.
The absence of recognizable forms or symbols liberates the paintings from any specific religious connotations, inviting the audience to delve into the deeper, universal aspects of spirituality. Drøschler´s deliberate abstraction serves as a conduit for the ineffable, permitting the intangible to take precedence.
The medium of oil, with its fluidity and richness, becomes a vehicle for her exploration. The high pace at which she works infuses the pieces with an energetic spontaneity, capturing the raw essence of your intuition and the uninhibited dance of her gestures across the canvas. The strokes seem to echo the rhythms of the unseen, translating the pulse of spirituality into tangible visual expressions.
Each stroke, each blend of colors, forms a language of its own, a painterly dialect that speaks volumes about the unseen and the sublime. These paintings, born from the fusion of Drøschler´s hands and her essence, carry a sense of transcendence, inviting contemplation and connection beyond the physical.
In essence, Erased Landscapes becomes a sanctuary where spirituality and art intersect, inviting viewers to embrace the enigmatic and embark on a journey of introspection, transcending boundaries and touching upon the very essence of existence itself.
