Gabriele Mierzwa


Typical of Gabriele Mierzwa's works is the sensitive portrayal of dynamic, intimate figures. These sensual moments are powerfully expressed through a sense of spontaneity balanced with tremendous washes of color.

Mierzwa’s main intention is to arrange harmony and beauty. At the center of her artworks is the nude – natural and graceful. The observer is impressed at first glance by her figurative drawing followed by the tender color-fogs and dynamic lines that form the background of her works. On further observation, the concrete forms dissolve and lose their contours. Only transparently arranged color fields are visible. The observer's fantasy can freely develop within clouds of color and form.

She has exhibited in Hamburg, Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Offenburg, Lahr, Wuppertal, Schwetzingen, Bingen, Stuttgart, Köln, Germanisches National Museum Nürnberg, Olten, Basel, Zürich, London, Tokyo, Miami, Los Angeles and New York.
