Artist Spotlight: Undine Bandelin

In this series, we present artists currently working in our studio. Today, we introduce you to Undine Bandelin.

We visited our current Local Participant Undine in her studio close to Pilotenkueche. Born in Jena, Undine studied painting in Halle and lives in Leipzig since 2013. Currently, she collaborates with galleries in Leipzig and Erfurt. Her subject is mainly the human figure, its ways of expression via posture, movement, and physique, but her motifs digress into portraits, landscapes, and animal studies as well. Interpersonal communication plays an equally important role as much as individual traits.

Often, she begins with a screen print, transforming a photography into a template which is then modified. This requires high anatomy skills and coenesthesia, intuitive knowledge she often supports by practicing, sketching, and working over the image several times, adding colorful layers that transform the original starting point. The result is settled somewhere between dream and reality, story and status quo, a very unique take on surrealism and expressionism.
