Ronja Radau Artist Portrait

These artworks unfold as atmospheric images, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in a realm of color and feeling. German artist Ronja Radau works in an intuitive and emotional state, resulting in colourful and abstract paintings which we find very powerful.

What do you call your series of artworks?

– None of my artworks are titled, all just numbered. Giving them a title always felt wrong since I felt like it directs the viewers approach. I’d love my art to be perceived as atmospheric images that may trigger something in the viewers mind, without them being biased through a title.

What inspired you to create the artworks you have made for The Ode To?

– My works are determined by everyday experiences, moods and emotions. I try to not have any expectations of the result, but let myself be guided by feelings and matching colours. The creative process focuses on the fluid properties of the materials and creates colorful and atmospheric images.

Can you tell us about your background and how you came to be an artist?

– I always wanted to create and was really into photography when I was younger. I started working with acrylics, until I discovered resin in 2020, but quickly realized that the contrasts were too strong for me. Since then I've gone through phases of experimentation and trying things out until I discovered and developed my own style.

How would you describe your art and aesthetics in three words?

– Dynamic, stimulating, harmonious.
