Katrin Maeurich on painting

“I want to maintain lightness and simplicity and avoid any sort of dazzle or gimmickry. So that is my Gratwanderung: too much or too little of either will not necessarily mean that the painting is bad but it has not met my own standard – it doesn’t rock my world. In that sense most paintings on my website are good enough for me not to sand them back and paint over them but only some of them I regard as successful.” ~ Katrin Maeurich
