Birgit Fechner - painter
"Among others, I want to depict traces of yesterday and the day before yesterday on the canvas, without a specific reference or rating."

German painter Birgit Fechner was born in Munich in 1962. She is a member of the BBK and has been involved in various art groups. Since 1982 she lives in Berlin, where she also works as an artist.  

Between tradition and spirit of awakening

Growing up in the field of tension between tradition and awakening, Birgit Fechner moved to West Berlin in the early 1980s. The young artist draws inspiration from the contrast between the idyllic city of Munich with its wide view of the mountains and the rough city of Berlin with its gray facades full of vitality and freedom. In her works, she gives artistically shapes the opposing emotions and places that accompany Birgit Fechner in her yearning.

Painting rooted in music and poetry

Birgit Fechner's painting is inspired by music and poetry. Her works are titled after songs or poems, such as "I pretend I'm free of sorrow," a line she borrowed from one of Bob Dylan's songs. The artist uses acrylic paint, oil chalk, ink or paper cutouts to create and collage imaginary spaces on the canvas through process-like layering. A recurring motif are flowers, often depicted using expressive colors. They represent a symbol of joie de vivre, vitality and transience. Birgit Fechner's works are snapshots that combine opposites: Beauty and destruction, life and death, big city life and longing for the countryside.

Europe-wide exhibitions

Birgit Fechner has exhibited her works in numerous solo and group exhibitions, among others in Munich, Berlin, Rügen (Germany), Gstaad, Münchenbuchsee, Montreux, (Switzerland), or Groningen (Netherlands).
