About the Artist
"Christine Rieck-Sonntag’s artistic career developed in a most explosive manner - although not audibly. Her palette became restrained and full of toning shades, unfolding thereby an orchestral refinement of nuances, lines and colours. Expressive movement and painting- techniques came together to form increasingly complex units. The existential exertion evidenced in her works is itself both compelled and compelling - it reveals a person who paints for their very life, all or nothing: an artist for whom art is not primarily aesthetic, but magic: the conjuration of and wrestling with the very depths of existence." Janna Miles, Landshut aktuell, Nov. 1991
"…Childhood and age are combined and contrasted. Sometimes an expressive brush outlines the forms of figures which suggest a child’s head or mother and child and which are rendered in a differentiated manner from the deliberately pale and faded portraits of the aged. Here, pastel blue and pink tones are used to sensitively describe the thin and limp yet not unappealing elder people’s bodies…" Süddeutsche Zeitung, 06.10.1995
…Both reflection and humour can be found in this artist’ highly personal visual expression..." Münchner Merkur, 7.3.96 Süddeutsche Zeitung, 06.10.1995
