Artist Word, Mixed Media

Ute Rathmann

Every week ArtisticMoods invites an artist to tell us something about the ambitions behind their work. This week: german artist Ute Rathmann. 

My medium is drawing. The human being is my motive, more specifically the human body and how it relates to clothes, costume, fashion and fabric. I tend to arrange my work in series with scenes reminiscent of masters such as Gustav Klimt. A model is dressed up according to a particular theme. This is the visual basis. The end result, however, is not directly connected to the depicted subject but takes on a life of its own.

My work is a never ending process–old drawings get torn to pieces, then brought together in a new way. These old fragments form new canvases on which I draw. Thus my “final” works can be seen as frozen moments in time, parts of an endless inquiry into the human form and nature.

    I love these wispy images. I like to think the ghost like beings are angels watching over them. Inspiring work. thanks for sharing them.
