Colette Wirz

"Kitchen creations", is how Colette describes her recent body of work. Starting with intense observation of objects, preferably live (like the 7 birds that live in her small Manhattan apartment, colorful fish she saw on her last trip to FL, items picked up in local flea markets or shells collected on a beach) are "taken in", and out come her own interpretations, dreams and reflections, landscapes juxtaposed with wild and still life alike.

Canvases line the walls, left and right, ready for her to add a touch here, a brush stroke there, whenever she feels the need. She can paint standing up, sitting down or even laying back on the couch - it's hard to predict a muse's visit.
