Nature’s Whispers: In Dialogue with Poetic Abstraction, a mesmerizing solo exhibition showcasing the intuitive, deeply layered abstract paintings of Swiss artist witty | Erica Wittenwiler.
Immerse yourself in her intricate, nature-inspired compositions that beckon you to engage with her work and let your own imagination soar.

As you journey through her 1st solo exhibition in Austin, you will be captivated by the depth and complexity of witty’s work. Inspired by her travels, close-up photographs of the natural world, and the texture of aged walls and floors, she allows her subconscious to lead her in creating richly textured paintings. True to her adventurous spirit, she combines techniques, layers, powders, pigments, and natural materials to achieve a fascinating expression. The artist’s innovative use of unusual tools and carriers results in intriguing structures and dynamic surfaces, unveiling the essence and beauty of the natural world.

The rich, organic hues, evocative of murals, landscapes, and vast oceans, seamlessly meld with the textural contrasts and depth that draw you in, inviting exploration and curiosity. In these abstract expressions, you will find echoes of mountains, coasts, and the ever-changing world, all whispering the secret language of nature, revealing a myriad of emotions and narratives hidden within.

Her creative process is akin to writing a poem, as she expertly layers paint and mixed media to build captivating compositions that emanate strength, energy, and serenity.
Each piece is a testament to her innate understanding of the natural world and her unique ability to transform raw elements into visual poetry.

Sometimes overt, sometimes concealed, each of witty’s pieces contains a written message, encouraging viewers to enter into dialogue with her art and find their own meaning.

witty’s Artist Statement:
“Viewers of my works can immerse themselves and let their own imagination flow. When you let yourself drift, you become an artist in dialogue with the images.”
