2018 wasserprojekt

Dear family, friends, colleagues and people of the world, please participate or share this post.

I am an artist and I paint with all kinds of unusual materials, one of them is colored ice (frozen colored water). In the summer 2018 I started an art project and it is still going. I started to ask people that are traveling to different places, if they can bring back or send back water samples, from all kinds of flowing waters from all over the world to Dresden, Germany. Because I would like to paint paintings with colored ice cubes again, but each ice cube (each colored spot on the canvas) is going to be a trace of a different flowing water.

So that’s we’re I need your help. If you want to participate, please share this project idea and tell people about it. So far I have around 25 bottles with water samples from Europe, Africa and North America.

Facts: I need  a small bottle of water(about 500 ml / 17 oz) from any flowing water in the world, GPS coordinates, time and date, when you took the sample.

Please remember to put the water in your check-in luggage!! in case you want to bring it in person. Because of the 100ml / 4 oz rules.

If you want to send me samples, please send me an email beforehand and we can communicate the shipping fee refund etc…

For more info and E-mail contact please check my website:

Also with the picture of the art project, that I attached, I published a little A4 size Zine. Please feel free to print it out, copy it, swap it and spread the news. Thank you soooo much. Sincerely yours, Stephanie Lüning

I dream in color – new works from Alteronce Gumby & Stephanie Luening, Hammond Harkins Galleries, Columbus, Ohio, US of A

Opening Reception: Friday, March 3, 2017  —  5 – 8 PM

This exhibition features two very different artists who share an interest in color. Yale University graduate Alteronce Gumby, currently a resident at the Cite Internationale Universitaire de Paris, uses plastilina, a clay-based medium, to fashion textured paintings that explore color’s potential, both social and artistic. Dresden-based Stephanie Luening, a graduate of the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts in Germany, creates installations that involve the transformation of liquid color. The products of time, chance and atmospheric conditions, Luening’s paintings materialize slowly into colorful primordial swirls. Whether in clay or melting ice, both artists examine the most basic phenomenon of light and human perception: color. Please join us in this exciting exploration and celebration of rainbow effects. Both artists will be present at the Opening.
