I am attracted to the Constellation paintings because of the toned backgrounds and the mix of color with black. As mentioned in my previous article about Miró, the use of line is just wonderful. I think that Kumferoth used these ideas as a jumping off point for her design.

I was thrilled to discover that Elsbeth Kpferoth is still creating art. She resides in Munich and has a website with examples of current work. She mainly paints large format acrylic paintings. I am drawn in my her smaller collage type work. I was very excited to discover this artist. I hope to do more research and writing about her.
