Strictly speaking, Mo Fontaine's work is all about color and its manifold expressions: from subtle to expressive.
In her still lifes, portraits and collages, she combines elements from different cultures and times, because she loves the art of the old masters just as much as she loves Japanese art of the 17th century. In this way, 'decelerated', magical-sensual images are created, which also transport the discredited concept of beauty. Seen in this light, some of the paintings seem to have 'fallen out of time' - not least because the paintings quite consciously refuse a fundamental category of the avant-gardes: the 'art of artlessness'. The aim is a timeless art that will perhaps still function in two or three hundred years. She completed her artistic training at the Folkwang-Hochschule in Essen.
