German artist Gala Biermann was born in Dresden in 1975, where she still lives and works today. After studying at the Staatliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Meissen (1994-1998), studying stage and costume design in Dresden (1998) and spending a semester abroad at the Academy of Arts in Tbilisi Georgia (2000) and Amsterdam (Netherlands 2002), she completes her diploma at the HfBK Dresden in 2006. Her pictures are evidence of this extensive education and the acquired skills.
Man and life
Just as is the case in theater, Gala Biermann offers life a projection surface through her pictures. Her graphics and paintings take on the topic of human relationships (e.g. mother and child) in different cultures or biographical events. Despite her motives appearing quite common, they are fresh and intelligent, for Gala Biermann manages to depict humanity without conveying. She discovers her motives during her numerous travels.
During her studies in Meissen, Gala Biermann learned how to precisely work with color and shape. Gala Biermann's goal is not to carry the perfectionism of porcelain painting over to her pictures. She reflects atmosphere and fast pace through her liberal style. The appeal of the incomplete leaves identities open. Even in her completely abstract works, mood and atmosphere are a central theme.
Gala Biermann engages herself at various levels in the theater. She started out as a stage designer and costume designer (2004) and then staged various theater projects and performances herself (beginning in 2013). At the same time she shows her artistic works in group and solo exhibitions, such as the 5th Dresden Biennale 2015.
