Maria Kollerup

Painter and more

Painting is primarily experienced with the eye, but eyes see differently. The meaning can glide between the transparent layers, into the forms and into the feeling of the tools. Maybe you see something romantic, or perhaps something threatening. The transition between meanings, repeated by the picture differently, makes it new.
Sculpture is seen by the eye, but is openly accessible for the touch. Cutting, dripping and polishing can be seen and felt. The Surface can fool, but it is in the surface that life is mirrored. One known form may be twisted into something deform, while still attaining beauty despite the broken harmony.

Maria Kollerup is a visual artist and holds a M.A. in Philosophy and Fine Art.
She has participated in exhibitions in Denmark and abroad, including juried exhibitions.
