A respective (self-chosen) perspective of the viewer explains the recurring central themes of “perspective”, “horizons” and “character” in her paintings.
The focus is on the intensive perception and visualization of ideas, emotions and thoughts, can lead to new developments in which the viewer can also explore new horizons through the (unconscious) perception a “butterfly effect”.
For art can be more than a representation. Art can do something in the viewer.
Solveig Rapelius says: “If you live the idea of a positive perspective, then, when you can deliberately perceive and appreciate the small things, then you can achieve a completely different horizon. It is on the hand, that even the awareness, ‘We are doing well!’ Can only be practiced if a positive impulse is sent to those who are not doing so well. For consciousness and self-awareness always depends on the position and perspective of a whole. Depending on your own horizon.”
