SELECTION OF PAINTINGS

Color is soul.
Although I have a broad practice, I have always seen myself as a painter-painter. I started painting as a teenager and have never put the brush down since. It is the color that drives me forward, where I never get tired of exploring yet another canvas. Over time, my practice has developed to also have a scenographic character, as when hanging the painting I saw the entire room as a large painting that the viewer can enter. And from there a narrative arises. But traditional painting is a nerve point in everything I do, which is why I of course continue to paint both traditional paintings and monumental specific paintings.
At present I am preoccupied with painting myself into an inner state of a spiritual nature. Meditation is an important method of starting a painting, where I see or sense a color as a shape, which I later try to paint in a conscious state.
‘Innerer Klang’ is the title of my upcoming solo exhibition at Muusmann’s in Copenhagen. In these new paintings I get even closer to expressing the inner feeling and being rather than the outer reality. Examples of works from this series can be seen on this page.

A SERIES OF ABSTRACT PAINTINGS
2018 – 2022
During a residency at Bethanien (DE) in 2018 Drøschler started a painterly abstract language. The abstract expressive painting is where Drøschler is today, she paints large scale in a high pace leaving the spectator with a strong inner vision. Drøschler claims that emotions are political and therefore uses her own personal emotions as a direct tool to create the abstract paintings. They are angry, sad, happy and joyful, just as the nature of the human being.
MEDITATION AND MEDITATION AND MEDITATION
A SERIES OF PAINTINGS CREATED ON MEDITATION
2020 – ONGOING
I have meditated on a daily basis since my mother taught me the basic needs when I was 11 years old. Meditation is therefore an important and core disciplin in my personal life. For the first time, at the age of 40, I have started to investigate a connection in between meditation and painting. This series as the most personal of my paintings why they may come across being different from a more expressive gesture in my other paintings, which I am known for.
Meditation is about repetition. All paintings are created on meditation. Again. Again. And again.
