LOVE LETTERS Petra Kaltenbach is an artist whose core theme is one of transformation, metaphorically, spiritually and physically. Her recurring motif is the pomegranate fruit, which stands as a symbol of love, wealth, health and divinity across traditions and cultures. Her latest series, NFT_LOVE LETTERS (2022) is a series of visual poems. They begin life as physical artworks painted and partially printed on mirrored stainless steel and then they take on their digital life with overlaid corresponding videos. The videos are transliterated Arabic terms of endearment such as NUUR AIYNI_the light of my eyes, ALBI_my heart or AZIZATI_my lovely, engaging with the deep romanticism of the Arabic culture, that she places at odds with the more rational thinking of her native German culture. She uses bright colours and a rush of patterns to create these visual love poems, which are a modern day ode to the timeless language of love.
