Birgit Klerch

Birgit Clerch, born in 1964, studied fine arts at the HfbK Hamburg from 2003 to 2008 with Prof. Werner Büttner and at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf as a master student of Prof. Markus Lüpertz. The training with these two German masters have significantly influenced her work, but also encouraged her to go her own stylistic way.

Central themes in the work of the German painter Birgit Clerch are landscapes, still lifes and urban life with its protagonists. Characteristic of the serial work process is a balancing act between a realistic representation and a working method that almost dissolves into non-objectivity.

Scenes initially perceived as contemplative turn out to be charged with content and suspense. Clerch works primarily with oil on canvas. She uses digital media, her own and found photos as a starting point and then collages them in the final painting process to a completely new composition.

Works by the painter are in private and public collections, including the Federal Ministry for Environmental Protection in Berlin.
