Studio view


The painter's new very personal positions are within the spectrum of individual image worlds and art-historical subjects. In their entirety, her artworks tell a story whose references can not be clearly grasped, but one senses them - subliminally.
The development of formal and substantive counterpoints between anatomical observation, fragmentary dynamics and painterly abstraction reveal interdependencies of love, hope, and time.

Nina Hannah Kornatz, born in 1985, grew up in Hesse, studied art history and philosophy at the Martin Luther University Halle, painting with Prof. Ute Pleuger at the Burg Giebichenstein and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna with Prof. Daniel Richter. Since her diploma in 2012, she has been working in Leipzig and Halle/Saale.
