The mixed-media painting exhibition will be on display from December 2 to January 27
– December 9, 2022
German artist Anke Punt Bach has inaugurated a new exhibition, “Horizon”, at Lagoa’s Municipal Library. Although some pieces depict the horizon, the place where earth and sky meet, “it is not the only inspiration that came with the title”, reveals the artist. “To increase interest, skills or experience, you need to broaden your horizon,” she says.
Inspired by the Algarvian coastline, Anke uses materials she finds during her hikes to create her artwork. In the Horizon collection, her mixed media painting are also the horizons where “painting and life are projected and intertwined. Where time plays and reveals itself. Where the painter expresses herself metaphorically”, revealing what she feels.
“The exhibition will show you my work, my passion, my horizon”, says Anke. “More than a painter, I am a teacher who wants to inspire, share experience and broaden the horizon of my students”, explains Anke, who currently gives weekly workshops at the Papelaria Arco Íris in Alcantarilha.
The exhibition opened on December 2 is free of charge. The collection can also be viewed during the Lagoa Municipal Library’s regular opening hours (Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm) until January 27.
