Just like Wassily Kandinsky, Yvonne Wilhelmi uses individual geometrical elements in her work. In her work reminiscent of Kadinsky the use of color, line and form are important.

Yvonne Wilhelmi’s portfolio consist of two definite types, Collages and photomontages. In her work she combines two important fields in her life, namely science and art. She uses media like oil, acrylic and paper to create little worlds of collages and photomontages. She takes a graph or combine two graphs and translate that into romantic compositions. Her mood influences the outcome of the line and form. Thus her work ranges from quiet lines to a wild bunch of dancing lines and forms.

She creates abstract collages and there is an inner harmony between each form, line and color. To achieve a thorough appreciation of her work one needs to look deeper into her work. In her photomontages she wants to convey a specific message and even in these work the use of line and forms are obvious. There is a certain romanticism to her work.
