Artists To Watch
The Berlin based artist Beate Kulinacontinues to pursue her translation of sensitive and sublime (garden) phenomena into watercolor representations. She studied Art History and Painting in Berlin and was working at the Theatre Pforzheim to paint huge stage sets. Deepening her research on the manifestations of light, her work is exploring storytelling traditions in an extended landscape.
Marcus Steffencurrently lives and works in Hamburg (Germany). The artist traces the origin of his deeply personal and quietly abstract work to his experiences in the nature. At the heart of his practice is a profound concern for process and materials, with each series seeking a formal solution. Influenced by minimalism, he explores issues related to the unknown space of anywhere and nowhere.
Claudia Bläsi is a German painter and photographer living in Munich. During her artists residencies in Vietnam and China, she has been exploring the vibrant downtown scenes. Her series of street art and Neo-Expressionist works on canvas and paper are characterized by psychologically powerful and fancy assemblages of charged words and cryptic phrases, numerals, pictograms, comic figures and commercial graphic art novels.
Carlos A. Duro’s expressionistic paintings are individual universes of dynamic brush strokes in Chinese and Japanese ink and acrylic colours on paper and canvas. The German artist is living and working in Leonberg and Buriam, Thailand. His current series, among them „Girl on Rocket“ is exploring the polarity between darkness and light, silence and noise, a story of power and passion in all its multilayered complexity.
Christine Keruth is living and working in Berlin. The art historian, philosopher, painter and Art Academy Berlin Weissensee Master Graduate, is best known for her nature inspired drawings and paintings. In her work we find a thinking about the grandest and most terrifying aspects of nature, and the ways in which figure, form and line are corresponding with the theories of the sublime. Keruth created a singular style based on the primacy of the line, involving it with a sublime neo-romantic language and infusing it with uncommon energy and optimism.
Tatjana Deutschmann’s paintings are inviting the viewer with empathetic compassion. The German artist and graphic designer studied at the Art Academy Hamburg, where she is is living and working. Many of her works, among them the portrait painting of „Clara“ (Clara Zetkin, 1857-1933, women‘s right activist) and the landscape painting „Black Forest“ are dealing with narrative elements. Although there is no action in the scenes, there is something mysteroius inside, the calm before the storm, when even wildlife animals keep quiet.
