curator biography art

Nora Wessel received her Bachelor's degree in Art History, Roman culture and Spanish in 2013 from the University of Osnabrück. In the spring of 2020 she received her master's degree at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, with a thesis on image science for modern and contemporary art and art theory. She has been working for Colonia-Art since the summer of 2019.

"For me, art is as essential as 'food', food for the mind and soul. Since childhood I have been fascinated by all forms of artistic expression. In addition to the so-called visual arts, I am also interested in music and literature. I am always Again touched and amazed by the immediacy and presence that are expressed in sound, poetry, performance and in color and form, these creative and primarily textless forms of communication create a universal language of discussion that everyone can understand and are therefore deeply human .

The current selection of "Curator's Choicve" should always reflect and breathe the diversity of artistic creation, that also represents the Colonia-Art platform."

Bodies in Movement 2 Kutschera art

Josef A. Kutschera: Bodies in Movement 2

KC90316

Kutschera exhibits in Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, England, Denmark, Italy.

As a multifaceted artist, he creates dynamics through written brushstrokes, moving structures and line layers. The resulting nuances can be figurative, powerfully prominent, but always remain open to interpretation.

The method of recreating and inventing form and colour speaks for the choice. His works create impressions of what is hidden under the surface of real things.
