Petra Schott is a German abstract painter whose career spans over three decades. Her journey began with a desire to represent her surroundings through painting, but she soon realized that abstract painting offered a greater opportunity to imbue her work with her own essence. Schott draws inspiration from diverse sources, ranging from fellow artists and nature to ordinary situations, and she aspires to continue refining her artistic expression and exploring various directions.
Schott’s artistic expression has evolved over time, reflecting the dynamic nature of her artistic journey. Initially, she abandoned the notion that a skilled painter must be capable of producing perfectly realistic renderings. Over time, her paintings have become more nuanced and layered, with an increased sense of risk and deconstruction. Her pursuit of beauty has transformed to encompass a more fragile quality, characterized by fleeting moments of balance.
