Brigitte Yoshiko Pruchnow

B

eautiful plays of light and shadow on different matters and surfaces translate into mesmerising patterns in Brigitte Yoshiko Pruchnow’s photorealistic paintings. Usually painted with acrylic on canvas, there is a quality of calm to her work, allowing the viewer to step out of the stream of time and life as they find themselves lost within the paint. The artist’s background as a filmmaker can be seen through her use of cinematic compositions; the unusual framing and angles capturing fleeting moments and adding a sense of narrative.

Pruchnow’s Japanese heritage is also felt throughout her work, through her experiments with different papers and techniques including, ink, pencil, pens, crayon and collage. Based in Munich, Pruchnow has had both group and solo exhibitions in Germany and Tokyo, and has had work shown at art fairs in London, Tokyo and New York. Her most recent exhibition this February was a solo show in New York. brigittepruchnow.com atelier@brigittepruchnow.com
