Portrait of the artist Kathleen Knauer

Kathleen Knauer

The abstract works of the visual artist Kathleen Knauer, who studied at the Freie Kunstakademie Mannheim, where she has been a lecturer since 2018 and prorector since 2021, do not emerge from a continuous working process, but always build up on several pictorial levels. Mostly they represent themselves but are nevertheless always in a relationship and interplay with others. The colour ground, which she never creates in monochrome, embodies a dynamic structure in itself. The expressive and complex grounds of the picture are formed by Knauer from a gestural brushwork. They make the pictorial planes clearly perceptible and give the picture a spatial depth.

In addition to numerous renowned publications and projects at home and abroad, Kathleen Knauer has been represented at international and national solo and group exhibitions since 2010.
