For decades, the internationally active artist Verena Guther has been drawn again and again to the metropolises. What she brings back from her working stays in photographic and mental impressions she translates into clearly composed powerful photomontages. Her photographic single images in connection with elements of her painting merge here in a skillful and subtle way to a unity and a very own unusual view of the cities emerges. "It is not the place itself which arouses my interest, but the atmospheric peculiarity, which is palpable to me in all its complexity." 1957 Born in Darmstadt, 1979-1984 Studied visual communication with a focus on experimental graphics, Hochschule der Künste, Berlin, 1984 Diploma with Prof. Helmut Lortz, Berlin, 2002-2004 International Artistpleinair Mirabel, France, 2007 Working Residency in Shanghai/China, 2008 International 111 Symposium Tenerife/Spain, 2011/2012 Working Residency in Istanbul/Turkey, 2017 Working Residency in San Francisco/USA, 2018 Working Residency in New York/USA.
