Gisela Krohn allows herself the luxury of perceiving reality as a picture, which is as kindly to reality as only a picture can be. A picture is the most gracious piece of reality that there is. The brief illumination of a world without fear.
These are the words used by Rolf Eisenburg, the late painter and friend of the artist, to summarize the essence of her work. Gisela Krohn’s painting is completely dedicated to nature, which she keeps rediscovering anew through a wide range of themes and with extraordinary diversity: water, forests, paths, the sky, clouds. Often placed in a clear central perspective, her pictures appear to be kaleidoscopic, sometimes radiant and full of shimmering light, and sometimes somber and mysterious – but always devoid of people. Gisela Krohn’s landscapes are intended not only to delight, but also to warn the viewer: nature doesn’t need us humans, but we need nature.
