Artist's Bio

Artist's Projects

Christiane Bergelt was born in 1982 in Marienberg, Germany. She is a professional painter living in the remote forested region of Brandenburg.

Having completed her MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art, London, she continued her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts, Nuremberg, graduating with distinction.

Her work evolves around experience, memory, language and the utter joy of exploring colour and shape. The essence and foundation for the work is the human figure. These are paintings disclose a process of accumulation and are reminiscent of all human activities. Motionless at first, then swift like sunbathing lizards, figures emerge.

Working with paper as the basis, colour, bodies and pictorial space ignite her practice as a painter. Events, words and ideas interfere. Submitting to them, we can then find out when and why it has become a painting.
