The setting sun spreads a pearly pink glow and sends blushing shades of beauty on you. The garden is like a sea of flowers, from the most delicate baby blue to striking cobalt. Everyone has gathered on the stripy green lawn, and the beautiful blue flowers are fragrant and delicious. The soft music of laughter fills the air and the hues on the horizon are blue, pink and grey, signalling that this is indeed a very fine day. Enjoy the Blue Garden Party my friends!

By building up many layers of texture and colour, using brushes and palette knives, Angelika creates a rich surface and vibrant relationships between random shapes and deliberate markings in her work. She also uses charcoal and oil pastels to heighten the botanical impressions and create depth and movement in her paintings. The drips in Angelika’s work illustrate the endless cycle of growth and decay in organic structures, which again is a reflection of life itself.

The botanical forms on the canvas are inspired by flowers but in an abstract way in order to create a visual language that gives the viewer room for their own interpretations and dialogues. There is a constant awareness in her work to create translucency and light within the paintings and to show the ethereal beauty of nature.
