Clara Broermann

Born in Duisburg, Germany in 1982. Lives and works in Berlin. She received her MA from the Universität der Künste of Berlin in 2011 and studied at the Wimbledom School of Arts of London, UK in 2008.

Clara Brörmann‘s work offers the beholder a chance to trace the paintings’ process of formation. She uses oil paints and adhesive tape on her canvases; in intermediate steps, the support is rubbed, washed off or sanded several times. So during the genesis of the painting the materiality of the various layers is foregrounded, and the result is a temporally condensed work.The artist plays with the beholder’s natural thirst for knowledge and offers in her works insights into the intellectual and practical process of visual creation. She sketches and rejects, layers and removes, until she has created a unity of colour, form, and material.
