Munich, 18 July, 2016 (kk) - Emotional, candid and natural – this is what characterizes Hildegard Auer's work best. A selection of paintings from the oeuvre of the Stuttgart native will be exhibited at Ketterer Kunst's Munich location as of September 12.
To Hildegard Auer art is, above all, one thing: very personal. She only paints things she has experienced and that touched her deep inside. By means of a realistic, naive style she ties in with the art of New Objectivity and succeeds in deploying her very own magic. The self-taught artist manages to render a deep-rooted truth.
The quest for fulfilling an ideal, which was extremely important to the artists of the "Blauer Reiter", is what she shares with her role model Gabriele Münter. Additionally, her art is characterized by an expressiveness that directly touches and deeply moves the observer.
A pdf catalog with all works on display will be released on occasion of the exhibition that honors the artist who passed away in 2015 at the age of 86. It will be available as of 1 September on www.kettererkunst.com.
