Petra Rös-Nickel’s original paintings merge playful forms, bright colors and architectural compositions in oil and mixed media on canvas. Her contemporary artworks contain rich textures and patterns, referencing popular European textile design of the fifties and sixties. Rös-Nickel’s work translates the geometric and organic elements of an era which hoisted the flags of modernism and which, due to a trend to return to a rather retro style, has become topical once more.
This colorful 31.5 inch high by 31.5 inch wide contemporary oil painting is wired and ready to hang. The sides of this artwork are painted and it does not require framing. This one-of-a-kind painting is signed by the artist on the back. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable U.S. and global shipping options available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.
Petra was born 1963 in Wathlingen near Celle, Germany, and breaks completely new ground with her abstract forms of painting and expression. After studying fashion design at the professional school for clothing in Bremen, 1980, Petra Rös-Nickel changed her field of study to architecture in Eckernförde, 1982. She now lives in Hamburg, Germany. Preferring the creative aspects of the studies to the technical ones, the artist developed the basics of her painting, never denying the roots of applied design and soon ending in a refreshing, distinctive style.
Petra Rös-Nickel experiments with form, along with the use of a technique that draws attention to the processes used in creating a painting. Essential is the color space presented in multiple layers that offers the beholder access to more profound color planes. These details, scratchings, and rubbings lead to various elements of tension, such as “patchwork” or harmonious-contemplative forms (“windows”) and “oscillating lines”.
Rös-Nickel's modernist paintings develop an energetic impact on the space they‘re displayed in, conveying her joy of life and self-confidence. Her abstract geometric textured artworks have been exhibited and collected worldwide, including Germany, Belgium, USA, Canada, Singapore and Hong Kong. Notable collectors include Chris Rock.

Petra Rös-Nickel was born 1963 in Wathlingen near Celle, Germany. After studying fashion design at the professional school for clothing in Bremen, 1980, she changed her field of study to architecture in Eckernförde in 1982. Preferring the creative aspects of the studies to the technical ones, the artist developed the basics of her painting, never denying the roots of applied design and soon ending in a refreshing, distinctive style.
Since Petra Rös-Nickel shapes her painting into compositional subjects, her work can be put into different visual categories such as “patchwork”, “windows” and “oscillating lines”. As much as the groups may differ in their aesthetic expression, the artist‘s distinctive characteristics and methods remain cohesive.
Working in both an additive and reductive process, Rös-Nickel builds and removes layers from the surface of each canvas to present panes of color that appear in both the foreground and background. This manipulation of space through color challenges the viewer’s perception of depth. These scratchings and rubbings lead to various elements of tension, such as “patchwork” or harmonious-contemplative forms, which she calls “windows”. Mostly established on large tables of colors and directed towards one color world, the artist‘s oil paintings develop an energetic impact on the space they‘re displayed in, conveying her joy of life and self-confidence.
