"Art can be one of the most intimate ways to connect with your soul -
if you let go of the desire to understand it."
Linda Ashoff is a Berlin-based artist with the main focus on abstract painting. Additionally, in the last few years she has been working as a graphic and interior designer. Growing up in a family of artists, painting was natural in her life and she has continuously expanded and deepended her skills in this area. She had several solo exhibitions in different locations, her work is represented in private collections and she had already successfully participated in many competitions such as the "Luxemburg Art Price", the „Residency Prize“ and the "Dean Collection". Her work is mainly based on acrylics and the result of a long and ongoing experiment with different techniques and materials. The outcomes are multi-faceted, intense, vibrant, and energetic paintings.
"No matter what you see in my artworks, it’s more important what you feel. Because that feeling, I believe, is a reply to the energy that radiates from the artwork. Part of the same energy flows through me when I create and cause exactly what I want to present with my work: a form of connection.
In a world where there is a sense of ostensible separation, there is an equally deep yearning for peace-making connection with your true self and with your surrounding. Some of my findings about this longing for inner peace in its various forms of growth, ease and connectedness are reflected again and again in nature. Here everything is interrelated and has a reason to be without assessment. With my work I want to show the uniqueness of life, the energy surrounding us and especially, that every existing element is connected to each other. I would like to invite the viewer to perceive themselves as part of this whole and to remember through my paintings this peace-making connection.“
