Petra Flierl’s works are dominated by colour and mainly female figures. Both elements compete with one another in motifs, which are taken from media reality or her own personal environment. Flier’s intuitive method of working, which borrows from Picasso, Pollock and Gauguin, means that she usually produces her pictures in one uninterrupted process. The emotional valences of each work are also reflected technically, sometimes in an impasto oil painting, sometimes in a light watercolour. Ultimately, Petra Flierl’s objective is to capture the emotions prevailing in any one moment in her own unique language – alternating between heavy and light, transparent and impenetrable.
