German painter Karolin Hägele, born in 1963, lives in Berlin, where she works as a freelance artist. In her work she deals with movement and perception. After completing her first degree in social pedagogy, she studied liberal arts at the University of Berlin (1994-2000).
Even during her childhood, Karolin Hägele was influenced by the painting of the German expressionists like Gabriele Münter. As a result, she creates expressive images in which she reflects moods and atmospheres of the places. For this purpose, she mostly uses pigments and egg tempera as binding agents on canvas. The artist prepares preliminary drawings, works on her paintings intuitively so that they arise from a lengthy process in which she carefully weighs intermediate stages.
The expressive images also always reflect a part of the inner emotion of Karolin Hägele. The artist lets her surroundings engage her and finds motifs during her walks through the streets of the city. Hägele does not negate her subjective view and thus shows the viewer a part of her personal experience.
