Artist of the moment…..Christiane Baumgartner

Christiane Baumgartner was born in Leipzig, Germany in the year 1967. The artist has a great story in that she started off being a traditional painter, discovered her love of  video art, and then found her own unique voice using a still from video as the basis of her woodblock. The artist creates her woodcuts on traditional Japanese paper.

For her artistic education Baumgartner attended school in Germany before earning a masters degree in printmaking from the Royal College of Art located in London.

Has done a residency in the country of Vietnam.

In this clip from the Tate, we listen to the artist briefly explain her unique blend of video and printmaking:

Price range information: Sorry none available.

What a great blend of modernism( the use of the video still as a basis for drawing) and the traditional printmaking skills Baumgartner developed whilst at the Royal College of Art.
