Andrea Bischof 1963

Studied at the Mozarteum Salzburg, painting and graphics, textile design. Since 1989 exhibitions at home and abroad.

Andrea Bischof is one of the most important contemporary artists in Austria and has made a name for herself especially through her subtlety of color and the great balance of her compositions. Her painting is a coloristic feast for the eyes. She achieves this in a patient, month-long process by placing luminous tones next to and on top of each other, which leads to their mutual enhancement and to full-toned chords through optical color mixing. In this way, she succeeds in creating works that lead to touching events.
