Bettina Mauel


Bettina Mauel’s art can be described as a tribute to seeing. In the many years of her artistic work, the artist has devoted herself to a single, yet inexhaustible theme, the overwhelming phenomenality of our world. Bettina Mauel was born 1959 in Wuppertal, Germany. She studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy with Gerhard Richter, one of the most important artists of the 20th century. She lives and works as a lecturer in painting and artist in Cologne, Germany.

Mauel expresses dynamism and sensuality in her paintings. “I paint what I experience,” she articulates. “This includes landscapes, flowers, and people in motion, capturing them at a particular moment in time.” Her artworks often incorporate a sophisticated and vibrant sense of movement. The secret bond that connects everything is the combination of appearance and perception, which Mauel has devoted herself to the study of during her artistic career. Whether the subject be dancers, city-scapes, landscapes, or pure expressionistic brushstrokes, Mauel has exemplified herself as an expert in the acute perception of ephemeral moments.

She has presented her work in numerous exhibitions throughout Europe, North America and Asia and her art has been acquired by many public institutions.
