About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

With her series "Muros" Werkmeister turns to Spain, its structures, colours and the dramaturgy of light and shadow. "Muros" reflects the hardness and softness of the forms. Light and shadow draw bizarre forms. Reduced to a few colour nuances, the images are characterized by elegant tones. Acrylic and oil pastel on paper mounted on wood panel.

Somber Abstract Painters


German artists

Sibylle Werkmeister was born in Germany. She later moved to South America and studied art in Santiago/Chile where she became a master student of the famous Chilean artist Prof. Raul Bustamante. The seven years in South America during the Pinochet-Military-Regime, where many artists were persecuted, shaped her. The continent of Pablo Neruda and Diego Rivera had a great emotional influence on all her artistic work. Neruda's poems, Rivera's large wall paintings and the vibrant and rich South American culture provided Werkmeister with creative inspiration for the use of colour. 

In the years since choosing her creative path, Werkmeister worked as an emerging independent artist in Chile, Spain, and Germany. Her work transcends cultural boundaries and explores a wide range of different materials, techniques, and styles. 
Her paintings have slowly developed over the years, from figurative into abstraction. People, architecture, nature, lines, and colours are reduced to the essentials and find themselves in a painterly movement, which in its essence becomes a new abstract reality. Her aesthetic, abstract compositions invite the viewer to pause and go within. 

Sibylle Werkmeister has regularly exhibited her works since the 1980s in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Her works hang in museums, private collections, and public institutes in the USA, Saudi Arabia, Chile, Spain, Switzerland, and Germany. Furthermore, she founded and directed her own well-renowned art school "Freie Kunstakademie Ueberlingen" in Lake Constance, Germany. In her role as curator of the art school, Werkmeister has  organized numerous events and exhibitions. Since 2016 Werkmeister has devoted herself entirely to her own art. She now lives and works in Spain.
