Gemälde Lore Bert Ornament in Gelb

Artist: Lore Bert


Lore Bert, born in Gießen in 1936, studied painting from 1953 to 1957 at the College of Fine Arts, Berlin. Since the 1980s he has been producing collages, picture objects, sculptures and entire installations made of paper, in which the most miniscule paper sheets made of the finest Japanese paper are shaped to perfection and applied to their media.

The constants of her work are floor plans of medieval sacral architecture as well as a simple geometric vocabulary of forms – such as circle, square, triangle, octagon, pentagon, also numbers, letters and sentences of philosophers and poets.

By 2016, more than 125 spaces in public institutions have been realized in Europe, Asia, Africa, Arabia and America. Over 300 solo and group exhibitions in more than 28 countries worldwide, published in more than 40 monographs. Works are in numerous public and private collections.

Lore Bert lives and works in Mainz and Venice.
