When we enter Claudia`s artwork, we go into a hermeneutic physical-literary world. Not only does she portraits figures but she also retouches, symbolizes and express a message. Through her paintings she transmits what the character would think to operate. As soon as our eyes penetrate the depth of her painted speeches, it appears signs and air from different places. Each of her artworks describes
something important and catches our attention. Her work is open to multiple doors and comments, and reveals her own history. Her paintings are different from the Zeitgeist because these are representational and narrative and at the same time colourful and decorative. Claudia Birkheuer decided one day to change sides. As a graduate in journalism, she worked for a german Radio- and TV-Station, she reported about people and told their stories. She still remains committed to this theme and in 1997 merely switched from creative reporting and making films to creative painting. Thus her descriptive tools are now canvas, brush and paint. She was trained at “Art Academy Trier”, “Museum Kunstpalast” and was taught by famous painter Albert Fürst (Group 53) Germany.
The artist exhibits her work regularly in national and international galleries and artfairs: Duesseldorf, Cologne, Maastricht, London, Monaco, Barcelona, Bologna, New York, Paris.
