Now Featuring Contemporary Encaustic Painter Birgit Huttemann-Holz on the Homepage

April 5, 2010

In the studio of her uncle Werner Holz, an outstanding German artist, Birgit Hüttemann-Holz was exposed to Imaginary Realism/Phantastische Malerei from early age on.

Intrigued by the contradictions of the human psyche, she first started to write poetry. While working as a Physical Therapist, she went to study Literature, Philosophy, Education and Media Science at the Philipps-University, Marburg, Germany.

A sudden change of her life, the move to the USA, triggered a stop to her writings, and a universal language was needed, taking visual form.

Birgit Hüttemann-Holz’s work is exhibited nationwide and internationally, she lives and works as an artist in the Greater Detroit Area. “I paint with hot liquid beeswax, pigments and fire. The beauty of an encaustic paintings lies in its uniquely transparent layers building luminous and lush colors that are sealed in a jade-like surface.”
