“My greatest inspiration often comes very suddenly in a moment of pure serenity. When I look at the white canvas–I feel free, and I just start painting,” says self-taught artist Peter Häusser.
Using primarily acrylic paint, Häusser often mixes the colors directly onto the large-scale canvases. “Everything happens quite intuitively–and I feel the harmony of colors. I like to compare abstract painting with classical music, which does not use words or any descriptive terms that navigate, channel and even limit your interpretation, but it only uses tones. And in the same way the colors in an abstract painting form a composition, without depicting any motifs, which gives you the absolute freedom in your thoughts and feelings.”
In all, each of Peter Häusser’s paintings are visually captivating. See more of his work on his website.
