Maria Trautwein's work is based on the categories of observation and rethinking.
The artist is concerned with such topics as
age, gender, feelings, personality, mortality. These topics are considered through personal sensory perception of life, especially during the childhood. This perception is superimposed on the system of classical academic education, referring to famous artists of
the past, comparing oneself with them, quoting their works, searching for the uniqueness of their time. The artist is inspired by the Renaissance, avant-garde, modernism,
contemporary British painting, performance, philosophy, literature, classical music.
