Angelika von Schwedes came to painting from times and places through which a stormy wind blew and left her shaken by conflicting emotions and changes. Upheavals not only in politics, but also in art, philosophy, ethics and how people saw their own humanity and their relationship to nature and the world. She followed the example of her expressionist teachers, but then detached herself from them and went her own way. The defeats and dilemmas of an embattled German generation are present in her paintings, but also the creative power that arises from conflicts and challenges, intensified by a female consciousness that opens the awareness to other dimensions.
The artist is exposing her work at the Beirut Exhibition Center in September, in an exhibition that will run until October.
