Painter | Germany
Barbara Steinmann – An artist whose pictures look photorealistic, but not to the last instance. Wanted or unwanted?
It is important for the artist to be able to guess the brush stroke. So it's wanted!
It is also striking that she mainly takes sections of photographs, which she then paints oversized.
Her statement: We also perceive the missing, the unpainted, so we see more than the canvas reveals.
She often coats her large-format oil paintings with Diamond Dust, which gives the pictures their own, unmistakable presence. This gives them even more glamor than the painted icons already have.
