CONTRASTS are welcome in Hahnemühle´s art calendar contest. This year´s international competition is now open. Hobbyists and professionals can participate and submit works of art in all painting and drawing techniques as well as in traditional printing methods.“I like the play of contrasts and use both complementary and chiaroscuro effects to create tension and bring vitality into my work. Regardless of technique and material, the precise expressive references that I want to convey arise” says artist Cordula Kerlikowski. Her pictures in the invitation to this year’s painting competition for the Hahnemühle 2015 art calendar are intended to inspire other artists – both hobbyists and professionals.
“Hahnemühle papers provide an optimum opportunity to experiment with different weights, sizes and surfaces, so that the subject of my art and the material are working together in the desired way whether in acrylic painting, watercolor, drawing or in traditional printing processes. Diversity of the papers guarantees almost unlimited possibilities of artistic expression.” Cordula Kerlikowski is well versed in many painting and drawing techniques as well as in traditional and innovative printing techniques.
Now, the German artist paper manufacturer is looking forward to entries from it fans worldwide. Welcome are works of art featuring the interplay of light and dark, colour and monochromatic or any other contrasting effects to create an ultimate art calendar for 2015.
Entry is open to all individuals. Up to five works of art in all painting, drawing or traditional printing technique are welcome. The only requirement: all images must be created on a paper by Hahnemühle or Lana. The closing date is June 30, 2014. Entries can be submitted online via the upload portal on Hahnemühle´s website www.hahnemuehle.com.
