Street art, ethnic embroidery and figments of the imagination on paper

In Christel Maria Nolle’s universe of works on paper, you can feel the pulse and culture from across the world in stark contrast to man’s search for origin, perfectionism, beauty and peace of mind.

The process

The works are made up of different materials – mixed media – in the form of clippings from magazines and newspapers, paper cuts and travel photos, Washi tape in neon colours, stickers and homemade stamps.

The process, in which watercolour often forms the basis of her work, gives Christel Maria Nolle an intuitive way of working, allowing her to work with the different elements with ease until the right expression materialises.

Inspiration

She draws inspiration from her many travels, from the art she collects and from art books, museum visits and city walks. Often with patterns from fabrics and ethnic embroidery, or with figments of her own imagination, which appear on the paper in the form small sketches. Seen as a whole, these become colourful and expressive works on paper, often incorporating social commentary in the form of written fragments of text and exclamations.

Christel Maria Nolle is a visually oriented and observant person by nature. Not many patterns in brickwork, art and ornaments go unnoticed, stored in her memory until becoming part of the process when the work starts. She surrounds herself with art and keepsakes from her travels in her home and workshop – sources of constant inspiration to venture into new forms and expressions.
