Berlin artist Henriette Müller has been a wanderer between creative fields and also between different cultures. This lead her from Ulm in Southern Germany through Europe via Zambia and Zimbabwe into the USA (where she received a Master of Music degree from Manhattan School of Music in 1994, http://www.msmnyc.edu/) and on to India.
Pain, dying, solitude, war – Henriette Müller deals in her work with major subjects of art. This is balanced with almost meditative works that mirror the beauty of this world.
“The large paintings centre on the subject ’war’. The emphathic superiority and desolate powerlessness of the silent nature is the frame for pain, despair and loss of war...At first glance, Henriette Müller’s paintings seem almost enigmatic - mystic surroundings, a landscape ready to dissolve. She creates in her work a dynamic that is emphasised by the materials used.“
Art historian Juliana Hellmundt about the series „kaliyuga“
The artist is grateful for everything she could learn from:
- H.E. Dzogchen Rinpoche (what really matters)
- Walter Dohmen (printing techniques, especially intaglio)
- Stephan Keller (lithography)
- Ludmila Ulehla † (contemporary composition)
- Hartmut Fladt (musicology)
- Dick Oatts (saxophone)
