  • Stefanie Brehm in interview with Katja Andreae

    “As an artist, I work on an introspective basis....” Stefanie Brehm in interview with Katja Andreae. "Stefanie Brehm describes her work as a penetration of materials.

    "„Painting forward“ at Galerie Judith Andreae displays picturesque positions, which illuminate and affect current as well as everlasting topics in their very own language. Whether it may be an unusal choice of material or technique, current political reference or the reinterpretation of something already existing – the displayed works focus forward. ..."
