The artistic argument

In everyday life, ideas and innovations meet again and again and take turns. So also with Birgit Kuss. She looks back on a wide variety of creative periods and draws from the archaic primal force of old high cultures, which she translates into her works. It is essential that the artist does not follow a time-bound trend. All striving for perfection is subject to temporal conditions and has the effect that the painting of Birgit Kuss – despite a distinctive and typical style – is and will be subject to change.

As a tireless observer, a rarely satisfied nerd and inwardly seeker Birgit Kuss has entered a new creative period. The only constant of the artist is the color gold! Gold is a symbol of wealth in material and spiritually spiritual life. In the figurative sense, gold stands for inner wealth of the soul.

The Psychoenergetic Effect of Gold

Gold looks sublime, noble and precious on us. We perceive the shine and the radiation of gold as warming, since we associate it with the light and rays of the sun. In the translated sense, we combine light shine and radiation of gold with enlightenment of the mind and awakening from the darkness of ignorance. On the psyche, gold is supernatural, metaphysical and transcendent. Gold acts on us as perfection; it transforms the earthly to the divine. It embodies the supernatural perfection and is a symbol of immortality and eternity.
In a color composition, gold can not be integrated; it always seems isolated and as if in a unique position, it comes to the fore and dominates the other colors. The self-glare sets it apart from the other colors, gives it something radiant and special and makes all the other colors appear as secondary. This grandeur over the other colors gives her a uniqueness that we associate with qualities as distant, above and beyond things. Subtle Gold has a balancing and healing effect.
