Characteristic for Dagmar Vogt's work is the fusion of abstraction and representationalism, with a thematic connection to the decay of nature. The artist, who was born near Cologne, Germany, in 1960, explores the borderline between anatomical and free sculptural representation with her paintings and sculptures.
In her relief-like and large-format paintings, she captures the atmosphere of nature with its mountains, lakes and plants: "The cycle of life- nature and its cycle is eternally new themes for me." The results are series such as "Blossoming and Withering" and "Blossoms by the River", which have a fairytale-like effect, and appear as moments from dreams - they are never clear and always blurred. The decay of the luminous blossoms seems to become visible in a single moment through the abstracted painting technique. Dagmar Vogt works with many gradations of a colour tone and makes several preliminary sketches.
The artist, who works and lives in Herdecke, Wuppertal and the Allgäu, completed her training in painting and sculpture under the great artists Markus Lüpertz and Mathias Lanfer, who was a master-class student of Tony Cragg. Her work is represented in galleries in Germany and New York.
In 2018, Dagmar Vogt won 1st prize at the Kitz Award in Kitzbühel for the category of sculptures.
