Dynamics, easiness and powerful liveliness are the characteristics of Frauke Klatt's artistic works. A visit to her studio in Travemuende immediately gives the visitor a sense of the joy of creativity. The idea is not the representation of beautiful water landscapes, schooners in full detail, traditional sailing ships or big passenger ships. Rather, Frauke emphasizes on canvas her direct impressions of the sailing experience.
Frauke Klatt is a self-educated artist. After completing her education in teaching and starting a family, she pursued her desire to paint with a private instructor. It was there that she was introduced to the art of
Lyonell Feininger, an influence that found its way into her early work. Eventually, she found her own direction and mode of expression. Now, the overwhelming tool is her emphasis on the horizon. Abstraction allows her to transport the viewer to a vision of freedom on the sea.
