Petra Reissmann, born on 08.01.1969 in Frankfurt/Main, grew up and lives in Bad Nauheim.
Petra Reissmann has always been engaged in creative processes and has recently focused entirely on painting. Her abstract artworks are created with complete dedication, great passion, and delicate depth, which sometimes shows itself in soft structures, but also in fragile or rough elements. Although large-scale works are always lost in details, they give the viewer enough space for free inspiration. Thus, a distinctive style has emerged, characterized by an unmistakable sense of color compositions, and organic forms, as well as an exciting interplay of surfaces, layers, and planes.
Her works are mostly large-format and predominantly created with the palette knife technique.

My paintings depict light and shadow, departures and unions, but this everyday duality can be found in all of us. The paintings have an affirmative, optimistic, future-cheering statement, in that life is presented as something beautiful.
