Bea Garding Schubert has accomplished a lot since we first met in November of 2017. Energetic and productive as ever, she is now able to fully live from her art. A dream come through for her! Time to touch base again with this inspiring woman.
Q&A with Bea Garding-Schubert (Germany)
As an artist, what is your biggest dream?
“My greatest dream as an artist is to bring hope and joy into the world. My paintings are meant to inspire people to think about love, peace, and happiness. I want people to be emotionally touched by my paintings as I try to spread the idea of a better world through my artworks.”
What do you consider to be your biggest challenge?
“My biggest challenge is to be alone in my studio. It would be absolutely wonderful to share a place with more artists.”
What’s your greatest talent?
“I consider my greatest talent to always be able to find my own visual language. It took me some years to discover my exact colors, forms and lines which best suited my philosophy of life.”
I am absolutely not good at …
“It is hard for me to answer this question. Whatever is crossing my path in life, I continuously do my best and I always seem to be able to find a way. But if there is one thing I have to mention: When somebody is asking anything about my artworks, I just can’t stop talking :)”
I consider myself rich when…
“Being rich for me means to go into my studio every single day. I don’t mind if it is too warm or too cold in my studio. Simply be with my paintings and being able to let the paint flow on to my canvas, is pure richness for me. Sometimes it feels like a drug.”
The artist I admire most is…
“I admire Paula Modersohn Becker, a German expressionist; mostly for her strength to fight for her art. In a male-dominated world of artists, it was difficult for her to find her place. Paula was not widely known at her untimely death, and only later recognized as one of the most important representatives of early expressionism.”
What do you wish for yourself in 2020?
“The year 2019 was fabulous! Full of creativity and it was a privilege to be included in many exhibitions and international art fairs. In 2020 I intend to slow down a bit and have a closer look at my artworks and my goals. I need to determine where I want to go and adjust my path accordingly. I definitely wish to get in contact with more artists through studio visits and exhibitions.”
