Enamel Paint & Charcoal on Canvas | Tanja Weidenbörner


Tanja Weidenbörner: German artist working and living in Essen, Germany.  My technique of dripping or flowing enamel paint and charcoal on canvas was born through trying, experimentations and at least checking out the limits of different materials, their behavior and their effects on the canvas.
My technique allows me to paint in the degree of detailing which I like to have it. In the end the faces appear to be a rough portrait with vitality, but without the entitlement of perfection.

I am focused on modeling the smooth and glossy surface of enamel paint and the consequential play of dynamics that dominate my paintings.
Aesthetics and grace is one of my most important aspects creating my unique artworks beside to emotions and expressions. My paintings should be attractive, stylish, unique and distinctive.

On the first look they are beautiful – on the second look they arouse viewer’s curiosity because of their shadows, depth, edges and the smooth and glossy surface of the enamel paint. In the end each of my artworks is a successful dynamic ensemble.
