Become an art collector and win an original of the special 2008 edition – exclusively for ARTS.21 viewers!
German painting has a worldwide reputation. ARTS.21 can help you start your own collection: just solve our picture puzzle and win a work of art. Every month we will be raffling off one of the twelve works in our 2008 edition: a serial work by Sonia Steidle: «Forsythia», 30cm x 30cm, acrylic on canvas, signed by the artist.
Sonia Steidle was born in 1962 and studied under Erwin Heerich and Tony Cragg at the Dusseldorf Academy of Arts and under Christian Boltanski at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris.
She lives on the shores of Lake Constance. In her paintings, she invents a botanical world of her own. Turning stalks, leaves, flowers, fruit and seeds into abstract forms, the artist dwells upon time and trancience. She reveals the essence of plants in her architecturally rigorous shadow pictures. In "Forsythia" a flowering shrub becomes a symbol of the metaphysical yearning for infinity. The great artists of 19th-century Romanticism projected their metaphysical striving for the infinite in the legendary "blue flower". Perhaps you will now find it in the yellow forsythia...
If you want to have a chance to win the last of the twelve original paintings of our 2008 edition, seize this opportunity. All you have to do is solve our picture puzzle.
In November the biannual International High-rise Award is announced in Frankfurt. So we want to know where the world’s highest building can be found.
