Janin Walter is a German artist who works with the media painting, photography and performance. She has been researching spaces
in her artistic practice since 2009.
Her current work is less about external spaces than internal processes and ideas that are created by the spaces in which she resides
The artist uses meditation to penetrate her intuition in the purest way. Immediately after each meditation, still in a state between sleep and wakefulness and where theta brain waves are active, Janin Walter paints. This state gives the opportunity to paint out of her intuition. She is working on several pictures at the same time.
For weeks, sometimes months, every day, after each meditation,
a new layer is applied on the paintings. This intuitive painting process is a criticism of the rationally driven society, in which every decision has to be made analytically. In her artistic process, the artist follows feelings rather than analytical decisions.
