Sandy Lang is a figurative painter living in Germany and this is a website about her artwork and a wee peek into some work in progress. Besides small series in red ink and red thread stitched on canvas, she mostly works with oil colours since she loves their brightness and texture. It allows her to explore strong dark and light effects and helps her to express the themes her paintings deal with. She is inspired by symbolism and fascinated by paintings in a realistic manner. So she uses her work as a translation of thoughts into the visual world, with a very personal approach to themes such as shadow and light, gain and loss, the ambivalence in all human matters and always love – or its absence. Combining symbols with figures and putting them in relation in a realistic manner of painting, is the language she uses to create her alternate reality. To give something inner and invisible form and manifest, if you like – its outfit in the tangible visual world.
Vita & Exhibitions
Developing her work over several years until she felt ready, Sandy Lang started taking part in group exhibitions in Berlin, Prag, Portugal and Florida and worked towards her first single exhibition, which was 2016 in a lovely location called ‚poor and literate‚ in Berlin. Though she likes working in nightly solitude by her own pace, she also did arty collaborations, including production design and scenery for two short films and created paintings for the temporary art collective „Marsyasprojekt„. During the last years she took part in several online exhibitions such as „Her weight in Gold“ by Visionary Art Collective and „Unity“ by The Holy Art Gallery in London and was featured in Magazines and art directories. Her recent work is a big series of oil paintings on the topic of imaginative encounters, embodied by her figurative ensemble with references to poetry, historical images and a little bit of outer space.

In February, ten years ago I took part in my very first group exhibition and this was quite a big deal for me. While practicing art on a regular basis since I was seventeen, it took me until my thirties to decide whether or not I would want to make my art work public, feeling …
On my desk tonight
As there is magic in new beginnings, it always feels special painting the first layer. Everything is still open yet visible what it might become. Have a peaceful year everyone and keep up the spark.
