I AM A DISCO BOWL

SELECTION OF EXHIBITIONS AND PUBLIC PERMANENT PAINTINGS

I am moving on the dance floor, my body is jumping up and down, it is out of control, I do no longer know where I have been, not here. Please, take me even further out on the dance floor, let the sparkle begin, show me all the movements. Let us all join in one collective body. Move. Move. Move.




Move in words about what you see. Here. Painting. Large and small. Drawings. Move my hands. Follow my hands. Color. Cosmos. A god without a religion. Where should I go? Performance. I AM A DISCO BOWL. Words. Installations. I am changing, transforming, moving to the next image created by my hand?

(This is a note I wrote to myself late in the evening, after talking to my dear friend about what I do as an artist. I was trying to explain to her that I do not create ONE thing in ONE media, I explore many medias in many forms and expressions. Most of it has to do with a core need for the intuitive, which is the closest language I have of a spiritual awareness. But I do not have a religion. I do nor either have ONE concept I need to explore all over again in my art practice, I prefer to see my art practice as an intuitive presence of being. But is it possible to be accepted as a professional artist without having a clear concept to preach when being asked? And is it possible constantly to find new ways of painting, drawing, writing, perform and install and still be accepted?

Yes, my dear friend replied.
Because you are a discobowl.

Welcome to the dance floor.)

AFTER IMAGES

mages do not arise from nothing, there is always a history.

The exhibition is about the role models that artists have either motivically, technically, thematically, materially, mood-wise or in some other way. The exhibition focuses on the work’s starting point and asks about something that might otherwise be difficult to talk about, namely artistic relationships.

FLOATING SOULS

GROUP EXHIBITION
CORNER SOPHIENHOLM, DK
2020

Floating Souls is a series of paintings where Drøschler depicts a less expressive visual language. She says about them:

“I wanted to explore the notion of meditation in my paintings. For years I have meditated on a daily basis. During my meditation sessions I see form and color floating with my eyes closed. I believe that these internal images are glimpses of an other dimension which I guess I have always been seeking throughout my life.”
