Brigitte was born in Bavaria but now lives and works in Northwich, Cheshire. After studying English and French, she settled in the UK over 20 years ago teaching languages at secondary school level. Art has always been her passion and in 2016 she decided to focus on her art and soon embarked on the journey to gain a Master’s Degree in Fine Art with the Open College of the Arts (OCA). Having achieved her aim in 2021, she is now quickly gaining national recognition as an inter-disciplinary artist working across a range of media and subjects. Since October 2023 she is also Artist in Residence at the University of Chester.
She says about her work:
“At the root of my practice is an ongoing fascination with the notion of entanglement – the continuous, cyclical process of emotions, encounters and experiences interlacing and interconnecting and subsequently affecting and intra-acting with mood and memories.
Forever concerned with ways of portraying the transient and multi-dimensional layers of these intangible encounters and emotions, I continuously investigate and explore new and improved ways, techniques and materials. Most recently the fragile process of analogue photography has become central to my inquiry and adds a compelling element to the narrative.
Just as the human ability to control the entanglement of emotions and experiences is near enough non-existent, through the manual process of analogue photography I futilely endeavour to capture a way to control the uncontrollable whilst ultimately rendering control to the elements. Together with collected, pilfered, found, recycled, repurposed, re-used and always carefully selected objects and materials the analogue images amalgamate to develop a complex sometime surreal dynamic. ”
Brigitte’s works form part of many private and public collections worldwide and she regularly successfully exhibits at regional and national level.
