INGE H. SCHMIDT
FACIALITY – BEYOND THE SILK ROAD
Exhibition 5 September – 26 October 2019
Husk Gallery – Brussels
Curiosity and desire pushed me to travel through Tuva, Buriatia, Siberia, Tajikistan and Xinjiang – going farther and even farther.
And even when I thought I was in the middle of nowhere, I realized that what touches me the most is the connection with human beings. Their faces are my inexhaustible source of inspiration.
There’s a story behind every face I paint. I can’t stop telling it.
Inge H. Schmidt
„All of her images are stations of involvement and somnambulistic, nightmarish visions that certainly don’t lack wrath, perplexity and even anarchistic wit.
Eva-Susanne Bayer / Main Post
The very first minute I saw Inge H. Schmidt’s paintings I was immediately spellbound by the explosive, vulcanic element of her depicted images. One can say that this energy virtually blows up the realistic form.
Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Gauger
„I passionately draw – it’s simply who I am.
It flows naturally and completely takes over my body and spirit. It has been the main focus of my work during the last years. The craft develops continously. „Going back to an earlier stage“ doesn’t work – it’s just like love.“
From my studio talk with Veit Stiller / Die Welt
