Karoline Maahs-Franke was born in Mittersill/Austria. She initially worked for many years as an accountant. In addition, she is engaged in painting, but only since 2018 she has just worked as a freelance artist. She lives and works in Bruck an der Großglocknerstrasse / Austria.
Karoline Maahs-Franke´s works are mostly abstract mixed techniques on canvas. Her pronounced style creates space in even small formats through the use of grand gestures when applying colour. That may also account for the reason why her pictures resonate with so much energy. They are characterized by a sophisticated balance between her strong, colorful palette and a sweeping gestural movement, which always comes back to harmony. As with all abstract images, the image does not tell the observers what to see exactly. They may follow the invitation to discover things for themselves through intense meditative considerations and to experience seeing as a process of rest and inner peace.
Karoline Maahs-Franke has exhibited in her regional environment and has been represented by the LDXArtodrome Gallery internationally since 2019.
