Anita Albus (Bilingual edition)

Die Kunst zu sehen | The Art of Seeing


Art as Natural Science

This book is not yet published, but will be available from December 2022.

ISBN: 9783775751742 Category:


At first glance, Anita Albus’s artistic practice seems like a welcome anachronism in the midst of the fast pace of contemporary art production: the artist creates detailed images of plants and animals using color pigments she makes herself. She is inspired, among other things, by the still lifes of the Old Masters. With her art, Albus moves at the intersection of meticulous nature research and creative work – the results are paradise-like illustrations that the artist also publishes in the children’s books she has written. In 2004, Kunsthalle Kiel purchased a convolute of her works and published the accompanying book The Art of Seeing. The new edition of this enchanting survey volume invites the reader on a discovery tour of Albus’s artistic research.
