Art & Consciousness About Artist

About Artist

I am a cosmopolitan multimedia artist, have moved to Switzerland decades ago. Primarily self-taught, later graduated in “Art and Consciousness” at the Lesley University USA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesley_University . A member of the International Assosiation of Art UNESCO.

Various exhibitions in different countries. Art-works at museums and private collections. For example in: Jean M.Tinguely Museum, Switzerland; Japan; China; England; Afrika; Canada; USA; Russia; Portugal; Italy; Albania (private & National Museum of Modern Art).

Formely participated in work-shops in Europe & USA. Such as: theatrical expression of primary emotions; writing for your life; introduction in expressive art methods in therapy & pedagogics; butoh- & expressive dance; experimental theatre performance; living in the process; female mystic – male mystic etc.; continuing studies in applied philosophy & psychology. Alongside In 2008 I got certificate of IEK-Berlin as Art/Creativity Therapist. In 1998 my studio burnt down. Consequently approximately 300 paintings, numerous drawings, several art objects burnt. Therefore lots of my art pieces have not been documented. You can nevertheless partially see the process of artistic development in ARCHIVE.

Additionally to painting I have created several (video- and life) performances, some video art, installations, objects & writing. My interests include not only art but also philosophising, dance theatre, reading, writing, developing consciousness, gender topics etc.
