DAGMAR CYRULLA

My paintings are about what it is like to be human. They are an interpretation of experiences, choices and moments. The moments I capture are not staged, they are snapshots of time. I always title my work first, which hints to the viewer what the image means to me, and gives me emotional clarity while I am making the work. Despite the narrative behind each work being clear while I am painting, it intentionally appears ambiguous to allow the audience to invest in the image based on their own personal experiences. Through this I hope to engage their emotions and imagination. I liken it to being at a dinner party where you really connect with the other guests, it's not just a small talk chat, but a genuine sharing of feelings, ideas and memories. It is that human connection.
