ALEXANDRA HUELBACH


 Biography

 

"In art, one must be curious and bold!"

 

Alexandra Huelbach is a contemporary artist living and working in Cologne, Germany.

During her law studies in Cologne and Capetown (S.A.), she began her private art studies in 1991 in Cologne (Cologne Art School; various workshops in nude painting and free painting with Gaby Ludwig). She lived temporarily in South Africa and France (Paris) and during this time she intensively studied the art (-history) of the country. 

 

Artist Statement

 

Art is a journey into ever new worlds, there is no narrowness and no constraints. And this is exactly how she lives her art: The materials are diverse, the motifs range from nudes to abstract pictures, and both like to be connected with each other. She likes to try out new techniques and follows new impulses. The abstract works are spaces of emotions and often little stories. An abstract work sometimes takes weeks or months to develop, because the story has not yet been told. She paints layer upon layer and often parts remain hidden. The viewer should discover his own story in it and should connect the lines, search for the figure embedded in an abstract frame and accept apparent opposites. The work is a calculated game between coincidence and precise work.

"Art is as personal as a diary" - Alexandra Huelbach
