Harmony in Chaos *
*Chaos in Harmony
Elke Foltz is a French self-taught abstract painter based in Berlin.
She was born in 1990 in France to a Senegalese mother and a French-German father. After graduating as a graphic designer, she worked as an illustrator. At this time, the colors already guide the drawing. In Berlin, she expanded her artistic approach towards abstraction, creating colorful, textured, and bold universes in her paintings. Her work explores this by employing colors, shapes, and fragments of canvases she collects from her previous works. Her painting work is a search for balance in constant chaos. Each shape, line, and color on the canvas cannot live without the other. All the elements aim to be in harmony and perpetual renewal despite the prevailing disorder.
