The setting sun spreads a pearly pink glow and sends blushing shades of beauty on the chateau. The garden is like a sea of red, from the most delicate hues to striking scarlet. Delicious fragrances are everywhere and the soft music of laughter fills the air. The hues on the horizon are red, pink, green and grey, signalling that this is indeed a very fine day. 

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.
