Painting: "I have found my second earring"
2013 (100 cm x 100 cm, acrylic on canvas)
WIKIPEDIA: Elvira Bach (born 22 June 1951 in Neuenhain, Germany) is a postmodernist German painter known for her colorful images of women. A member of the Junge Wilde art movement, she lives and works in Berlin.
(Seriously?)….. Is that all the information you can get from her in Wikipedia? But why? If she is a very famous artist at least Wikipedia should have more info…
(Well, well, well)…..Today's intention is to give you three amazing links about Elvira's art.
This is her web page, where you can find her art work, sculptures, her sketch book, and more about her exhibitions.
This a 2002 interview by Brigitte Werneburg.
AND FINALLY MY FAVORITE!!!!!, A VERY PERSONAL LINK, BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE HERE HER STUDIO IN BERLIN, AS WELL AS THE ARTIST POSING IN HER STUDIO IN BERLIN….

“I always thought art meant renouncing things. But art is just the opposite. For a long time, my paintings were something like my children. But then, when I really became a mother, it was an overwhelming experience of an entirely different kind. I only took the plunge, though, after I was already able to live off my work” (Elvira Bach's interview by Brigitte Werneburg, 2002, Deutsche Bank)
During the creative work in my room
“The art market has its own laws. In my case, success turned up unexpectedly and I wasn’t prepared for it. It’s a real challenge, both in a positive and negative sense, standing up to all this pressure of success that one is constantly being subjected to. It costs a huge amount of energy and belief, and above all else, you realize that you have to motivate yourself” (Elvira Bach's interview by Brigitte Werneburg, 2002, Deutsche Bank)
See you next week!
