Top Artists To Watch
Birgit Stern creates artworks that depict leisure, happiness, and enjoyment of everyday life. Her paintings explore the positive aspects of life, evoking to the viewer a sense of peace and unmatched pleasantness. Using mainly oil on canvas as her primary medium, Stern creates figurative pieces, cafeteria scenes and modern still images with great depth and realism. The German born artist blends realistic human figures with abstract elements that mainly from the works’ background. The result is a brilliant depiction of human elementals in a cheerful environment and an ingenious interspersion of abstraction and reality. The pieces are simultaneously unobtrusive but convey a more mysterious and almost inexplicable effect. Viewers are slowly led into a calming and relaxed state that emanates from her pieces to strike them when they least expect it.
