Each painting with a unique characterPetra van Moorst is a fine abstract artist whose works are characterized by their subjectivity and minimalism.
Meditative experienceIn the behind-the-scenes reels on Instagram, Petra shows how she works with fluid acrylics and inks and what inspires her art. She guides the paint with water, resulting in an meditative experience. Petra's artistic journey started with an intense interest in painting. She found a harmonious connection between art and design, which motivated her to study design and fine art at the school of art.
Working with fluid acrylics and inksI primarily work with liquid acrylinc on raw canvas, striving to convey depth through transparencies and golden lines. I begin with numerous sketches on paper to familiarize myself with colors and shapes before embarking on the piece intuitively.
Evoking Harmony and BeautyInspired by exploration and a fresh perspective, her work centers on a rich color palette, ranging from soft colors to moss green. The paintings aim to capture an atmospheric quality, evoking the fluidity of water, the interplay of light, and the sense of weightlessness of a butterfly in the air.
A Dialogical Process with the CanvasWorking with liquid acrylinc on raw canvas necessitates patience and a willingness to engage in the interplay of detached observation and intuitive immersion, as each layer must dry before the next can be applied.
