About Karin Beck

born 1944 in Groß-Strehlitz (Strelce Opolskie/PL)
I live in Albstadt (Baden-Württemberg). There is my studio.
In a phase of life that gave me new freedom and at the same time at a time when painting was taking on a new role in the art world though a radical turn, I got to know Helmut Middendorf during several workshops in the Irsee Abbey and Bad Reichenhall. It was his colorful, expressive painting that corresponded to me very much. It went down in art history under the signum "Neue Wilde". That was 20 years ago. In the meantime my painting has developed, but it continues to move between objectivity and abstraction. My favorite motives are people and their emotions. The medium of the color offers me appropriate expressions. Reality always arises in my pictures under the changing conditions of the color with which the objects are placed in the picture. This openness to different meanings is reinforced by the situational nature of many pictures, which I pursue with skepticism and humor. So my painting remains subject to a process of constant change.
