I'm currently attending the fifth year in High School Art A. Modigliani in Padua.
My passion for art began when I was a child, and it exploded while I was attending the second year in High School.
That was the moment I started my first experiments in the art of animal portraiture using only graphite pencils.
Since then I've explored many medias, including pens, chalks, watercolors and inks
F R O H E O S T E R N,
wünsche ich allen Besuchern meiner Seite.
Meine große Leidenschaft ist die Natur. In meinen Bildern versuche ich, mit fröhlichen Farben,ihre Schönheit einzufangen.
Der Schwerpunkt meiner Arbeiten liegt im Aquarell, dabei
interessieren mich nicht nur Pflanzen und Tiere, sondern ganz alltägliche Dinge wie der Sonnenschein, Licht und Schatten oder das Glitzen eines Regentropfen.
Seit ich zu malen angefangen habe sehe ich die Welt mit anderen Augen!
Meine Bilder finden Sie auch unter:

It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in.

" Photography for me is a passion, a mixture of science and art that creates magic. If a day goes by without photography, it’s incomplete." -and that is exactly how I feel. Thanks for visiting my gallery!
I have been a freelance photographer for the last 12 months, Photography is my passion and I hope to make this my working life.
Most of my work is with fashion models and their professional profiles, some of the models I have worked with now are working in Europe.
I have started to explore nature and landscape photography.
My dream is to have the perfect sunrise photo much to the disgust of my husband whom I drag out of bed on those crazy early mornings.
I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I enjoy taking them.
AN APPROXIMATION TO THE WORK BY FRANZISKUS PFLEGHART
"In everyone there is an interior place, a secret space where creativity
throbs like a mysterious heart, creating wonderful parallel realities for our
life. This creativity allows each one to live that magic side of his
existence in the most desired inner freedom and the most enjoyable
gratification. To enable this to come about in a manner that satisfies our needs, we
must listen to the beats of this impalpable heart and go along with the
seduction that we feel coming from it. In this way, what is inside us is soon
shown to the world around us and is realized in the infinite transformations
of our life and in the tangible results of our actions.
This mysterious intimate creative space finds its broadest and highest
dimension in the vocation (in the Latin sense of a “calling” to a destiny)
embraced by the artist when he recognizes himself in it and makes it the
fundamental reason for his existence. This creativity is a secret and luminous
world, quite unique and different from one artist to another, where,
parallel and in relation to the real world, each artist lives by feeding on his
own visions and trying to express them to humanity through the work he
produces. And when we look at that work and feel attracted by it, something
stimulates in us the ability to tune into that secret world of the artist and
this in some way gives us the ability to re-create that same work.
This is the mystery which surrounds the magnificent works by Franziskus

Meine künstlerischen Arbeiten beinhalten in Fragmenten meine individuellen Lebenserfahrungen, Wertvorstellungen und spirituellen Überzeugungen.
Da ich davon überzeugt bin, das Gott uns die Kunst als Gabe gegeben hat, ist der Künstler das tätige und umsetzende Medium dieses Geschenks. Der Kreativität dieser Gabe sind kaum Grenzen gesetzt was man an der Vielzahl an Stilen und Künstlern erkennen kann.
Die Kunstwerke von Franziskus Pfleghart sind auserhab des Mainstreams. In der surrealen Abstraktion, in der er seine inneren Lebens- und Erfahrungswelten ausdrückt, ist das Dargestellte oft nicht sofort greifbar. Es bedarf der Entschlüsselung und somit auch einer intensiveren Auseinandersetzung mit seinen Werken.
Sein einzigartig, markanter Stil ist von enormer Kreativität, Klarheit und Ausdruckskraft und zieht den Betrachter weg von der Realität hinein in spirituelle,mystische und fantastische Traumwelten.
Seine Werke sind bei Kunden im deutschen und europäischen Sprachaum sowohl im privaten als auch im geschäftlich- öffentlichen Bereich zu finden.
Besondere Austrahlung entwickeln seine Kunstwerke in der großformatigen Darstellung.
