Inge Walter · A Painter of the Spiritual Realm
Inge Walter’s paintings have always centered on people. Using oil paint and red chalk as her primary tools, she has been able to portray the human from varying perspectives. Her fervent interest in philosophy would become apparent in her later works. Whilst Inge Walter’s earlier paintings predominantly focused on the embodiment of the physical human form, her philosophical studies would inspire her to illustrate the human from a abstract and symbolic point of view. Through her devoted exploration of spirituality, Inge Walter’s work gazes reflectively into the realm of the human soul.
The themes that are found in her work today focus on our spiritual growth and the path to the middle, the journey to self-attainment. Her paintings tell a tale of nature and man, of the creation of life and death as well as the crises and troubles we all encounter in life.
Inge Walter uses the oil paint and incorporates a special glazing technique. This method of painting was already perfected by the old masters and only passed through generations by word of mouth. Essentially, this technique involves placing one layer of color over the other. In effect, these paintings create deep and lasting impressions through their powerful yet calm aura.
The simple and abstract forms seen in her paintings are representative of ancient symbols. These archetypes exist in all cultures as an expression of Divine truth. Inge Walter is deeply committed to understanding the different religions found across varying cultures. The circle, the square, the triangle, the spirals, the dots, the waves and the meander lines are frequently to be seen in her works. These forms, combined with different colors, each color with its own special meaning, represent our spiritual thoughts and feelings.
Approximately 400 of these paintings exist today. Inge Walter lives and works in Miltenberg, Bayern.
