« When I paint a picture, I try to come up with something very original, existential. »
The artist Anna Bieler, born 1968 in Thessaloniki (Greece), spent her childhood in Greece, Portugal and Germany. She studied at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Fine Arts and received her diploma in 1997. Today she lives and works in Wiesbaden (Germany) and on the Costa Vicentina (southern Portugal).
Anna Bieler imaginatively and surrealistically paints creatures that move between abstract figurativeness, animals and natural elements. The picture composition underlines the relationships and connections between the figures. The artist focuses on interpersonal issues as well as on self-awareness and existential realms such as death and life. The narrative images allow the observer to discover stories and let his own imagination run wild.Lire la suite
A focus on primary colors
The compositions by Anna Bieler are mostly painted in strong and colorful primary colors, i.e. red, blue and yellow, as well as a lot of white. The strong contrasts between the colors delimit shapes and figures from each other and situate them in the space. In doing so, the artist usually does without perspective and shadow effects. Her pictures are direct and honest.
Anna Bieler's works have been displayed in numerous solo and group exhibitions, among others at the Kunsthaus Wiesbaden 2000, the Atelier neun, Mainz 2012 (Germany), the Galeria Porca Preta, Monchique 2005, the Centro Cultural de Lagos 2015 (Portugal) and the Casa de Cultura de Torrejón de Ardoz, Madrid 2018 (Spain).Masquer
