Artist statement : The idea that artists have a special role to play in bringing peace to people and countries appeals very much to me “Participating in this ‘struggle for peace’ fits in with the way I work and why I paint.”
Brighart’s oeuvre radiates positivism, energy and warmth. Though it is abstract, it stirs the imagination. The use of colour in particular appeals to many. Energy and movement are the subjects that inspire Brighart to make her paintings and prints. “Everything is energy, everything is in movement. That energy and power is what I want to express in my paintings. I would like people to recognize what I paint, even though it is abstract. There is positive and negative energy. Many artists concentrate on negative energy, on misery and frustration. Whatever you pay attention to, grows. That is why I would rather focus on the glass that is half full, on love, on happiness. Or, as Popper put it, “Optimism is a moral duty.”
