Biography

Translation in progress

Juliane Hundertmark is considered one of Berlin’s most original and inventive emerging painters. Juliane Hundertmark communicates everyday truths as she experiences them, unmasking pretentious and formalities. She paints her characters in staged groups, without deception or glamour, her distinctive style uses unusual visual metaphors to convey these observations. Animal mimicry is used to describe both aggressive and gentle behaviour, while eerie transparent spirits represent a character’s subconscious personality or spirit, and often appear beside their owners.

Whilst yielding many interpretations, Hundertmark’s work is primarily concerned with psychoanalysis. And as a keen observer, Hundertmark has developed a distinctive style of satire. She might be compared with German painters such as George Grosz and Otto Dix, however her paintings are executed in a very personal style of expressionism, which seems to embody the social conditions of our current times.

Hundertmark was born in Mainz in 1971 and lives in Berlin, Germany. She studied Design and Stage Design at Bayreuth and has a Masters in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Art of Nuremberg.

‘The paintings I saw by Juliane Hundertmark were all rather mysterious and even disturbing in places, such as the collaged eyes in one and lips in another, yet also with beautifully painted sections such the detailed clothing of one figure and the mere black outline of another. That enigmatic "otherness" and open-ended quality combined with different painting styles, some realism and some minimal painterly effects, is very exciting and makes the works fresh and innovative. She has an unique style unlike any other painters working today’ Barbara Bloemink, Curator Guggenheim Museums.
