Portrait of the artist Christine Kremkau

Christine Kremkau

The passionate gardener, Christine Kremkau (born in 1941 in Rathenow, Germany) knows how her students feel. As a painter, she draws on this connection to the plants, chooses the most luminous of all techniques, wet-on-wet painting, and shows this brief, biological moment, which is filled with delicacy and colourfulness. Her preferred motifs are flowers and landscapes in many variations.

The works of the expressionist Emil Nolde inspired her, and as a student of the English watercolourist Matt Bruce she matured and followed up with several stays abroad. Numerous exhibitions and publications make her an influential contemporary expressionist.
