Cristina Ohlmer

Cristina was born in Italy and studied in Stuttgart, then came to live in Freiburg. She has won many prizes, most recently Freiburg's prestigious Reinhold Schneider Preis Kunst(prize for fine arts) for 2022, to be awarded in a ceremony in December.  In her works she is concerned with light, reflection, transparency: she switches between different media and cultures to visualize the "fugitive fragility of time".

Annemarie Matsakow

Annemarie says"I am inspired by my travels and encounters with people at home and on the road. I have visualized these impressions in multi-layered works, reflecting the complexity of life, diversity, nuances. I work with glazing and translucent colors and materials, both in painting and in my objects and assemblages."

She has been based in Freiburg since 1986.
