A29:Kristina Kuester-Witt

She studied in Karlsruhe (Meisterschüler) and The Hague; currently residing in Belgium near Brussels after living in the US for over 15 years. Numerous exhibitions in Europe and the US as well as for example three consecutive Scholarships from Stichting STROOM The Hague/NL; Stipendium Kavalierhaus Langenargen; Kunstpreis Sparkasse Karlsruhe/GER and a Connecticut Fellowship, Commission on Culture/US. Her work as a painter and print-maker evolves around the human figure. Often she transforms elements of her oil-paintings into prints using a transfer technique called paper lithography. In the mixed-media series in Eupen she combines both techniques, printing and painting. It is a playful series about the human condition; depicting hopes, dreams, fears or inner conflicts. Metaphors in the form of other faces or small figures are frequently hiding in the patterns and represent duality. "While ultimate concerns of our existence come to mind, I like to keep my imagery simple and subtle."
