Statement - My story in brief -
by Elke Daemmrich, February 2014


Renee Phillips, director of Manhattan Arts International New York wrote in 2013 :

"Elke Daemmrich is one of the most accomplished artists I know. As an award-winning artist she has had more
than 75 solo exhibitions, including several in museums in Europe and the United States. Her life as an artist
seems to come right out of a romantic art history book. Born in Dresden, East Germany, she moved to the
southwest of France, near Toulouse in 1994. She bought a medieval house, the birthplace of an archbishop of
Albi, where she lives and works today. She works tirelessly creating art and taking care of her professional
responsibilities."



I am painter and engraver.
At first I want to explain my working process :

In my childhood I worked always on paper, making drawings and gouaches.
Now my artwork includes only oil paintings on canvas and engravings on copper and zinc.
I have painted in oil since 1989 and have made engravings since 1997.
I use these traditional materials because they require my full and complete concentration.
The creative process involved in a big oil painting or engraving can take several months.


In brief, I would like to explain my creative process:

All that I do, I do directly: That is, I do not use projection. I do not prepare drawings on paper, nor on plate, nor on canvas
in advance. My creation is always a direct communication with an object that captures my attention and which becomes
the subject and direction of my work.

That communication can happen in my garden: for example, an insect like a praying mantis aroused my curiosity.
Or while swimming in the Mediterranean Sea near Valencia in Spain, I jumped and hit a big round immobile object then
quickly left the sea. The next day, while walking on the litoral, I discovered a beach with hundreds of medusas.
That gave me the idea for my oil painting “The swimmer”.
Also, it can arise from a political event like September 11, 2001, the war in Iraq or Fukushima, etc.


I want to follow with my professional history.
This part contain my exhibition activity, because showing my art is crucial to me.
I will also speak about the awards which I received.

I was born in 1964 in Dresden, East Germany. My father was a toolmaker, my mother a housewife.

I made my first paintings and drawings on paper in my early childhood. The art museums of Dresden, with their collections
of expressionist, impressionist and old masters, were my inspiration.

When I was 20 years old I decided to dedicate my life to my art. My parents disagreed, so I took sole responsibility for my decision.
From there on I was essentially on my own.

In 1985/86, I could not attend formal art schools as I was barred from doing so because my parents and I had refused to belong
to the communist party. That is why I went to drawing classes, subsidized by public organisations in Dresden. I also did research
at the Saxon regional liberary, where it was possible to access art editions from all over the world.
In this way I acquired my knowledge of art.

In 1988 I had my first solo exhibition in Dresden, with colour paper works.
In 1989 I painted my first oil painting, using the same method which I use today.

After the fall of the wall, from 1990 to 1994 I took part in the artist group "Leipziger Blauer Reiter”, with Manfred Martin der Ältere,
who is today an important contructivist in Leipzig. This organisation regrouped artists, who, during the regime of East Germany,
worked in formalistic matter but were excluded from recognition.

In 1993 I was awarded a grant from the foundation Kulturfonds Berlin for my project "The light of the south", which gave me
the opportunity to work 6 months in Lacoste, Provence, in the south of France. Thus fulfilling my wish to live outside of Germany.

On moving to France my constructive painting period, for which I had received the grant, took another direction.
I became fascinated with landscapes, light and energy. The conditions of life, nature and culture of the Mediterranean Region
became and remain the most important subjects in my art.

In 1994 I moved to the southwest of France. In the Gers, in Tournecoupe (departement of the Gers*) I bought a medieval house,
the birthplace of an archbishop of Albi, where I live and work today.

In 1996 the first bull appears in my painting. For this work "The martyrdom of Saint Saturnin" I was awarded first prize in the art
competition “De briques et des pierres” in Toulouse, France. The prize consisted of the purchase of the painting.

Also in 1996 I experienced the ritual of bullfighting. There is a bullfighting arena in Vic Fezensac, near my place of residence.
Because I didn’t understand this culture, my curiosity was aroused.

In the same year I proposed an exhibition-project to the Goya Museum in Castres, a French National Museum, which was sub-
sequently accepted. The director, Jean Louis Augé, requested that I also work on a series of etchings for the exhibition.
That request lead to my first copper engravings.
During the following two years I painted and did etchings and as well travelled to bullfights in Spain (eg. Seville, Madrid, Bilbao).
Then in March 1999 I had my solo show “Los toros” in the Goya Museum in Castres, accompanied by a portfolio of 4 of my
etchings in homage to Francisco de Goya “La tauromaquia” (one of the portfolios is the properity of the Bibliotheque Nationale
de la France - Paris) and a catalogue (500 copies, 40 pages), financed by the french State Ministry of Culture.

In the same year, I went to New York for two weeks after which I painted a series of New York paintings.
That was followed by a series of paintings based on the act of terrorism on September 11, 2001.

My large painting periods, have always been followed by etching periods :
In 1999 I worked in Fuendetodos, Spain, the birth place of Francisco de Goya; for another series in homage to Goya.
In 2003 I went to Erfurt, Germany, to the “Kartäuser Press”, where I created and printed a series of etchings.
For the same reason in 2005, 2010 and 2011 I went to the “Grafikwerkstatt” in Dresden.

In my graphical works I am not only inspired by the mediterranean region, but also by political situations like the war of Iraq
“Irak”, in 2003 and “Fukushima” in 2011. In 2010 “Irak” was selected for the exhibition of the Saint Leopolds Friedenspreis,
Stift Klosterneuburg, Vienna, Austria.

During all my work periods I have also made selfportraits.

Since 2003 I have been a member of the professional art organisation BBK in Germany. In the same year, I acquired my
professional status in France and received my professional tax return number. Finally I could live from selling my artwork.

I will follow with a describtion of my exhibition activity, because showing my art is crucial to me since I refrain from
explaining my works. For me, a painting should stand alone on its own right, strong enough to not require an explanation.

In 2007 and 2008 another project lead me to the Mediterranean Sea : I painted outside in the Costa Brava, Spain, in places
such as the Cap de Creus. This work period was shown in three solo exhibitions in museums of Catalognia :
in 2008 in the Museo de la Mediterrania in Torroella de Montgri and in the Modest Cuixart Foundation in Barcelona
and in 2010 in the Museo del Cantir d'Argentona. Another project will take place in the Maritim Museum, Barcelona.

To the present, I have had seven solo shows in Spain, in Bilbao, Zaragoza, Calatayud, Girona and Barcelona.
Twice the government of Aragon financed the catalogue, which accompanied my exhibitions in the gallery of the Artschool
in Zaragoza in 2002 and in the gallery of the UNED (university) Calatayud, Aragon in 2010.

Also I regularly exhibit my artwork in France. Here are some examples :
1998 Villa Beatrix Enea - Anglet, 2000 Art Center Raymond Farbos, Mont de Marsan, 2002 Gallery des arches - Paris,
2006 Maison des arts - Bages, 2007 Museum of modern and contemporary art - Cordes sur Ciel, 2009 Art Center - Bédarieux,
2010 Gallery La tête d’obsidiènne - La Seyne-sur-mer (the Conseil Régional of the Var financed the exhibition catalogue),
2012 Salles muséales Jean Hélion - Issoire (with a catalogue project), 2013 Galerie d'art contemporain, Palais Bénédictine,
Fecamp, Normandie.

Also in Germany :
1996 Gallery Kalinka - Dresden, 2004 Gallery am blauen Wunder - Dresden (catalogue), 2005 Gallery Schön - Bonn,
2005 Kurfürstliches Gärtnerhaus - Bonn, 2006 Gehagforum - Berlin, 2007 French Institut - Dresden,
2009 Art Museum - Eisenhüttenstadt, 2009 Gallery of Vattenfall - Gut Geisendorf - Neupetershain (the business company
Vattenfall financed the exhibition catalogue), 2009 Gallery Finkbein - Dresden, 2010 Gallery am Domhof - Zwickau,
2011 Kunstfoyer Volksbank Bautzen eG.
From July to October 2011 the chemical company of BASF Schwarzheide GmbH, exhibited my artwork in their own
gallery (53 oil paintings and 26 etchings from the last 15 years were shown in over 700 m2 of gallery space).
The BASF GmbH financed the exhibition catalogue (800 copies, 132 pages, with a text from the art critic Christoph Tannert,
Berlin).
In 2012 I had a very beautiful solo exhibition at the Museum Junge Kunst in Frankfurt/Oder. There I was also accociate curator
of my own exhibition.
In 2014 take place solo exhibitions at the Galerie 100 Berlin, at the Museum Otto Schäfer Schweinfurt and at the Kunstsalong,
Kunstverein, Schweinfurt.

Other important exhibitions took place in Europe in 2006 in the Gallery Spiren, Strassen Luxemburg and in 2008 in the BWA
Gallery Design in Wroclaw, Poland.

In 2008 I took part in two group shows in the USA :
1. Women in the arts at the Museum of the Americas in Doral, Miami, where I received an honorific mention for the best artwork
on paper with my copper engraving “The lovers”, in homage to the literary work of George Bataille.
2. The International exhibition of contemporary art in museums in the Latino art museum in Pomona, Los Angeles, there I received
the first prize for grafic artwork with my copper engraving “Los toros de Burdeos”.

In summary during the last 25 years, from 1988 to 2014, I have had 80 solo exhibitions and participated in more than 90 group
exhibitions. Twelf of my solo shows included an exhibition catalogue.

My work has been purchased for public collections in Germany such as Sächsischer Landtag, EADS, Museum of Zwickau,
Helmholz-Zentrum Dresden, IFW Leibniz Institut Dresden, Volksbank Bautzen eG, Gesellschaft für Reaktor- und Anlagensicherheit
Garching and Köln etc. and for private collections in Spain, France, Germany, Belgium and Canada.

Since 2012 I have been member of the FONDATION TAYLOR - Paris and of the A.I.A.P.- Comité monegasque auprès de l'Unesco, Monaco.
The A.I.A.P. shows my work in 2013 in Osaka, Japon and 2014 in Milano, Italia.

In May 2013 I won a Jill Conner critic’s choice award in the juried competition “Celebrate the healing power of art”
Manhattan Arts International New York for my copper engraving “Bees” - 2013

Jill Conner wrote :

"Elke Daemmrich’s eloquent copper engraving “Bees” brings viewers up close to an evolving environmental
issue that is currently central to sustainability. Daemmrich presents these vibrant insects within a nest
of honeycomb and from multiple perspectives. The artist’s detailed renderings are so specific, layered
and mesmerizing that the lack of color becomes an afterthought. The circular rhythm of representation
keeps the eye moving throughout, examining bees up close and at a distance.
Elke Daemmrich’s utilization of mixed perspectives give rise to an awareness of a life so miniscule
yet profoundly significant. For Daemmrich, the truth is in the details."


In 2014 I've been awarded a $25,000 Individual Support Grant from the Adolph & Esther Gottlieb Foundation
Inc., New York, honoring my extensive career as a professional painter and printmaker.
This grant is awarded each year to twelve artists worldwide who have devoted their lives to developing their art
and have maintained a mature intellectual, technical and creative artistic development for a minimum of 20 years.

I'm also the winner of the "Prix Moulin à Nef" of VCCA Virginia, USA in 2015, which is given annualy for one artist
from the South-West of France and of the award "Acquisitions 2015" of the Colas Foundation, Boulogne- Billancourt / Paris.

Also in 2015 the Haggus Society Los Angeles accepted me like a life time member and include my artwork in the
exhibition "Vignettes".
