Frauke first had the idea of very light paintings on used sails made of Dacron. The structure and wear of the material are incorporated in the paintings and create a very special patina. In 1997 she exhibited the first of these paintings and created this new technique. Most of her acrylics with sand are very dynamic and three-dimensional. You can feel the splash of the water, wind and movement; the viewer feels like part of the scenery.
Frauke's paintings are not realistic; she wants to reproduce the impression of a moment, the things you remember after opening you eyes only for a second. The viewer will not identify a special yacht or class, but he will remember a situation or atmosphere. You will find the result of her sailing experience in all her paintings the angle of her view is always directly from the water surface, an angle all the other sailors see.
Frauke Klatt is a very enthusiastic sailor; she is collecting her impressions from sailing yachts. The voyages on the Baltic Sea on board of the yacht JACARANDA lead her to Denmark, Sweden and Norway and aboard other yachts into the Mediterranean Sea. Frauke Klatt also takes part on many great regattas as a viewer from a rib, including the America's Cup Jubilee in Cowes.
Frauke has exhibited at: Art Maritime-Hamburg, Galeria Boot-Dosseldorf and AAF-London. She is represented by leading galleries for maritime art: Kendall's Fine Art-Cowes, UK, De Scheepskamer-Netherlands and the Maritime Galeriet-Denmark. Many other exhibitions have been Monaco Yacht Show, the Fraffic Museum-Dresden, Denia-Spain, Bishopsgate-London, and many local exhibitions in Germany.
The paintings and commissioned work hang in home and offices of sailing enthusiasts as far away as New Zealand. Others are sailing around the world on yachts or are part of the interior of hotels, offices, beauty clinics and special stalls to present her sailing area on big fairs.SOLD.
