Love These!

Forever and a day.  2011   Acrylic on Canvas
German painter Nina Nolte was born in 1957 in El Salvador, grew up in Spain and Germany and lives and works now in Dusseldorf, Germany.  Her works manifest a great understanding for the reflection of light, the freeness of spirit in realism, and pure colour.  Her lines are soft and organic, complemented by the natural-colour backgrounds that brighten her figures and bring a simple elegance to her works.
Forgotten Dreams.  2010   Acrylic on Canvas
In the scenes of swimmers and loungers in the pool, the playful flittering of light across a watery surface is juxtaposed with the pockets of shadows and undulating ripples. The vibrant colours and confident gestures of her figures communicate a sense of serenity. One can feel the warm sun beating down from above yet experience the cooling, therapeutic relief of the water.
The song is you.  2010   Acrylic on Canvas
A bird’s eye view gives many of her works a cinematic touch. The close-up angles provide exposure to detail, thus inviting a certain level of intimacy and allowing the observer to make a personal connection.
You must believe in Spring.  Acrylic
