Bettina Krieg is a visual artist based in Berlin. She is known for her detailed pieces drawn with a paintbrush, a quill and a fineliner on paper. In the artist’s ‘about’ page Lisa Sintermann writes this about her:
“When Bettina Krieg draws, she does so equally intuitively. She allows her lines to grow step by step, without focusing on the result. The line becomes a trace of her concentration and openness in the making. The artist never corrects her hand drawn lines, but leaves them as they were first inscribed. In this way the drawing unfolds – it comes into being.”
“Bettina Krieg’s works consciously refrain from giving answers to questions of length, beginning, and ending. Her drawings have no titles. They depict nothing concrete, but challenge the imagination of the unsuspecting viewer. The artist is holding up a mirror – the images we discover reflect our own imaginations. Allow us to give in to the drawings, and see organs, muscle fibers, swallows, bays, heart sounds, frequencies or mountain landscapes.”
