Strittmatter's expressive works always fascinate with their very own, unmistakable symbiosis of powerful colors, clear shapes and surprising, imaginative playfulness. They are defined by their flow, rhythm, even their hidden narratives, which allow individual interpretations for each viewer.
For Armin Strittmatter, his colors are not just individual players in a holistic harmony, but also have their individual meaning: for him, blue symbolizes infinity. The sky and the ocean appear blue and infinite to the viewer. And the horizon where the two meet seems unattainable. For the passionate artist, red means strength, yellow stands for warmth and energy. The artist lives and works in Gibstorf, Switzerland.
