JULIA SOSSINKA moves completely freely in the world of colors and materials.
Boundaries between painting, sculpture and installation do not exist for her.
In this way, she not only creates art spaces, she creates new worlds.
She knows how to express moods and atmospheres and an intimate connection with nature.
The materiality of her color is haptically tangible, her formal language fluid.
Her abstract paintings radiate a vibrant energy and evoke memories of fragments of nature
in constant flux.
