Brigitte Yoshiko Pruchnow


Brigitte Yoshiko Pruchnow’s photorealistic paintings dissolve into pure painterly structures once looked at closely. light and shadow on different matters and surfaces translate into patterns, which lead to a sharpened sense of vision of the viewer. her compositions with unusual framing and angles reveal her background as filmmaker as well as her heritage from japanese woodprints. her brush- and penwork follow fluid movements similar to chinese ink painting or calligraphy.

her images have a calm quality which allows the viewer to step out of the often forgetful stream of time and life.
