Stefanie Gutheil, Labyrinth, oil and mixed media on canvas, 2009.
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, Germany has undergone a cultural renaissance. The new found freedom has opened doors for the creative minded that in past have not even existed.
Stefanie Gutheil, Hasen, oil and mixed media on canvas, 2009.
Gutheil draws inspiration from this new spirit of independence. The people she sees and meets are all part of the world that she exaggerates to canvas. This volition extends beyond the content of the work into unusual choices in medium. Found textiles, aluminum foil and spray paint converge to advance the artist’s insubordinate views.
