The trees and houses in my "Summer Haze" series epitomize people and their relationships. Sometimes, the houses are constricted in one area as a close unit and other times they lie softly embedded in the landscape. The trees dance, bow, intertwine or stand close together. The light on the branches symbolizes the emotional dialogue between the protagonists.

My starting point for any painting is the “magic clearance” between the clarity of a limited image space and the transparency and dynamic of color. I believe the observer and the artist meet in this space on a very personal level. This is where the observer realises that it isn’t about what they know, but what they are willing to recognize.

"Minichmair wants her work to express both the obstacles and joy of life, which she describes as a gift. We need courage, she says, to make it come alive.”
