Philippa Brück, born in 1993, resides and works in Leipzig. She studied theatre painting at Dresden University of Fine Arts from 2013 to 2017, followed by specialization in illustration with a focus on painting at the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg under the mentorship of Professor Christian Hahn. Philippa Brück blurs the lines between figuration and abstraction, inspired by classical still life painting and Baroque vanitas motifs. Rooted in her fascination with theater painting, her work reflects theatricality and explores the tension between nature’s beauty and transience. Through dynamic compositions, she captures the eternal cycle of life and change, inviting viewers to delve into her associative visual language. Balancing traditional and digital influences, Brück’s paintings creates a space to explore the beauty and complexity of nature in the 21st century.
