Bettina Mauel, ‘Dancers 2 (framed)’, 2014, Artspace Warehouse

Bettina Mauel was born 1959 in Wuppertal, Germany. She studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy with Professor Gerhard Richter. Since 1984 Bettina lives and works in Cologne, Germany.

Mauel expresses vitality and sensuality in her paintings. “I paint what I experience "she articulates. “This includes landscapes, flowers, people and always dancing.”

In 1984 she was asked by the city of Wuppertal, Germany to paint scenes of the dance theater of Pina Bausch. This had a major influence on the selection of themes in her imagery. Instead of focusing on spectacular poses, she homed in on the in-between: feelings, thoughts and fears.
She has presented her work in numerous exhibitions throughout Europe and her art has been acquired by many public institutions.

This artwork is framed in a black frame, floating mount, acrylic glass. It is wired and ready to hang. Size and price include frame. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware is included.
