Gitte Schaefer

Gitte Schäfer was born in 1972 in Stuttgart. She attended the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee and the Chelsea College of Art in London. A fellow from the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes from 2001-2003, Gitte Schäfer had a solo exhibition at Mehdi Chouakri, Berlin. Her work was also featured in a show at Kirkhoff Gallery in Copenhagen. She lives and works in Berlin.

Gitte Schäfer explores cultural symbols in her intimate paintings and drawings of interiors, landscapes, and architectural scenes. Using romantic or romanticized icons, such as old magazine clippings and flea market postcards as well as furniture and found objects, Gitte Schäfer presents the dichotomy of nature and culture.

She is greatly influenced by the applied arts, and frequently experiments with different artistic techniques such as pencil on gesso, perforated and painted metal and painted boxes.
