too loud for words and too shy for the world
Hanna Nitsch was born in Fribourg, Germany in 1974. Studying philosophy and literature in German at the University of Fribourg in 1994, Nitsch attended the Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe. The artist creates a glowing sometimes-strident color as the contours appear to dissolve into the figures making them seem disconnected as they fly, glide or float on paper, portraying a wobbly sense, similar to childlike vulnerability. She apparently paints mostly her own kids. Some of these ink drawings are really big too: 6 x 5 feet tall! So you can imagine their impact.
