Petra Rös-Nickel

Petra Rös-Nickel, born 1963 in Wathlingen near Celle, Germany, breaks completely new grounds with her abstract forms of painting and expression.
On her oil paintings, playful, free forms as well as compositional constructions develop into textures, referring to the popular European design of the fifties and sixties, particularly the textile and surface designs of that time. Her work translates geometric and organic elements of an era which had hoisted the flags of modernity and which, due to a trend to return to a rather retro style, has become topical once more, into her very own style.
