Christiane Bruhns

Kiel, Germany. Lives and works in Leipzig and Hamburg.


At the first glance, it is certain that work is being done here with meticulous precision, a scientist, an alchemist is operating here. The studio is tidy, from the floor to the high ceiling all walls are covered with works in the different states of their genesis. The artist is restless, I am taking up her precious time, the things she has to do does not permit delays, she appears to me like an alert, clear person driven by her creation. Is Bruhns a paintress at all, her works settle somewhere between painting
– sculptural coloured figures – coloured drawings. Bruhns’ monochrome shape is equally painting as it is the refusal of painting, it is a way of painting that hardly allows any of the many possibilities of painting. It is a sculptural experiment on the stage of painting.
