Rebekka Kronsteiner works at the intersection of painting and sculpture. Her works are characterized by tensions between image and object, imagery and pictorial support. The artist draws on industrially produced or found materials from the urban context, such as wax, latex, foils, textiles or Plexiglas. She works with these by layering or painting them - if possible without making a personal style visible. Kronsteiner is interested in processes of incidental imaging through processing and the resulting processes of decay. The materials age, fade, turn yellow or become porous. Kronsteiner plays with expectations and attributions of value. What strategies of transformation or reorganization are possible?
Rebekka Kronsteiner (b. 1996 in Überlingen, Lake of Constance) studied painting under Prof. Stephan Baumkötter at the University of the Arts Bremen and graduated as a master student in 2023. Her work has been shown in exhibitions in Bremen, Bremerhaven, Mainz, Kassel, Leipzig, and Recife. She is co-founder of the feminist cultural kiosk KOSK*I. In 2020, she ran the MMS Offspace in Bremen together with Francisco Valença Vaz.
