Christiane Bernreuther


Material: oil on canvas
Size: 60 x 80 cm

A young committed theatre writer and director from Tel Aviv. He got in touch with me, having worked on one of my paintings while studying at the Thelma Yellin High School.
Christiane Bernreuther born in Brunswick, Germany, studies at the Wiesbadener Freie Kunstschule. Since 2000 she has lived and worked in Hamburg. The focus of her work is portrait painting. Her most famous works come from the series " Faces of Life". These are mostly large-format oil paintings, which seem to be equal to the viewer. In her works Bernreuther always emphasises the uniqueness and personality of the people portrayed. In doing so, she penetrates the surface of the persons and works their characteristic features into the foreground. This leaves room for interpretation for the viewer. The faces painted with strong brush strokes reflect wit, defiance and beauty. One wants to learn more about these people- and about the life that has shaped their faces.
