Silvia Wilkens

The finely crafted acrylic chalk paintings by Silvia Willkens depict human faces or figures that are reminiscent of the Renaissance in a modern way. The coloring is soft, mostly held in earthy tones. Her image of human beings appears timeless and universal. For Silvia Willkens, these are her collective faces. The eyes are particularly interesting and lively, making contact with the viewer from every angle. In our increasingly fast-paced age, these images are balm for the soul and exert an almost meditative effect. 1953 Born in Bad Kreuznach, 1971 studied art education at the Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart, 1972 studied art history, University of Stuttgart, 1974 continued art studies, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz.
