Bianca Froese-Acquaye

The expressive, mainly large formatted and brightly coloured paintings of artist Bianca Froese-Acquaye leave no option to the viewer: softly but firmly they direct their eyes to the expressive compositions while making clear: these paintings develop a hypnotic life of their own.
With an unusual eruptive impulsiveness, Bianca Froese-Acquaye’s pictures tell stories from worlds of surreal dreams and feelings, from archaic sources of her own unique mentality and spirituality, talking through neo-cubist and abstract elements: a universal language which through its harmonic and predominantly pure colour compositions does not need translation.
In 2001 the well-known electronic band Tangerine Dream commissioned a cycle of 16 Paintings to the theme of ‘The Divine Comedy – Inferno/Purgatorio/Paradiso’ for CD-covers-artwork.
