Brigitte Yoshiko Pruchnow

Munich-based artist Brigitte Yoshiko Pruchnow experiments with multimedia to blend analogue methods with a Japanese heritage, playing with light and shadow.

Detailed, contrasting works sit between realism and experimentation – raising the awareness of the optical experience.

The artist notes: “In trying to capture an everyday, maybe not so prominent moment throughout the very, at least in my case, slow process of painting, I try to raise awareness for that moment and make it either a calming and centring experience or one that conveys the thrill and excitement of being alive.”

Pruchnow presents the Back Portrait series at Kultüre 2018 in Munich, 6-7 October.
