Kathrin May's works address man's deep connection to nature.
In search of an expression as unadulterated as possible, she has found a distinctive language that connects the phenomena of nature with her emotional world.
The artist collects in the surrounding nature, what the season just holds ready, which can be branches, leaves, wild herbs, flowers and roots. She puts these together on her canvas to create completely new visual compositions. In the play with color, light-filled plant shadow cracks develop, embedded in the contrast of multi-layered color gradients in the background. Here light meets darkness, tranquility meets motion, and a crystalline dynamic spatiality emerges that repeatedly condenses and dissolves.
Kathrin May's works address the sensual perception, the deep feeling and tell of the happiness of being in nature, of lightness and joie de vivre and the beauty of the moment.
