“In my artwork there are works that no longer have any reference to an existing visible reality, although the technique is naturalistic..”Brigitte Stenzel
Brigitte Stenzel studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. She is a master student of Anke Doberauer. She lives and works in Munich and Freising.
She is master pupil of Anke Doberauer.
In her naturalistic painting she deals with the subject of image, the iconographic interpretation of images, their abundance of interpretation and their transience.
This approach enables her to discuss their content and actuality. This makes it possible to impressively make the painting itself a topic and the recipient. This is a significant process, especially today, in a media society characterized by interchangeable images and post-factual reality. Their approach combines the questions which contemporary art, and especially painting, must address.
What is reality? What is valid beyond time? How do we fix it? Can I experience and express it aesthetically? Just to raise a few questions already at this point.
Brigitte Stenzel has exhibited internationally. Her works have been presented in Prague (Czech Republic), in Taipei (Taiwan), but also in the German-speaking area in Salzburg, in Chemnitz and of course in Munich.
