Brigitte Yoshiko Pruchnow’s photorealistic paintings dissolve into pure painterly structures once looked at closely. Light and shadow on different matters and surfaces translate into patterns, which lead to a sharpened sense of vision of the viewer. Her compositions with unusual framing and angles reveal her background as filmmaker as well as her heritage from Japanese wood-prints. her brush- and pen work follow fluid movements similar to Chinese ink painting or calligraphy.
Her images have a calm quality which allows the viewer to step out of the often forgetful stream of time and life.
