Nicole Bianchet - Wünschelwas 

Bianchet’s abstract painting draws references to art of the 1960s. Her questioning of tachism and the introduction of this abstract form to painting leads to horizontal formats or pre-Raphael tondis. Her technique of partially removing acrylic paint from the surface reveals the wooden board beneath, creating ornamental or crater-like forms that recall abstract, almost romantic landscape shapes.

In cooperation with Galerie Michael Haas in Berlin.

Nicole Bianchet was born in 1975 in Los Angeles and studied from 1995 to 2002 at the Staatlichen Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe, which is of international significance in today’s contemporary art context.Bianchet effortlessly overrides all post-war critical art conventions. Her media is painting, photography and sound. Large abstract wall paintings often emerge that serve as a presentation surface for the three media and as the “frame” for the production. A skilful combining of the three media results in installations where the artist cultivates a sense of longing similar to what we see in Romanticism.
