|A postcard from KATHARINA HINSBERG, sent from Neuss, Germany. Katharina is a visual artist with a focus on drawing and installations "posing fundamental questions about time, space, and the subjectivity of drawing." Her work has been widely exhibited in Germany and abroad. Since 2011 Katharina is a professor for conceptual painting at the HBK Saar. She and her work is represented by the gallery Werner Klein in Cologne.|
Katharina and her family live close to Düsseldorf, at the Raketenstation Hombroich which is part of the Museum Insel Hombroich, which was founded by the art collector Karl-Heinrich Müller in 1987."In creating this unique ensemble of art, architecture and landscape, he was true to the tenet of the Impressionist Paul Cézanne – ‘art in parallel to nature’. Museum Insel Hombroich is a special place, away from the bustle of daily routine and fashionable trends. It is an invitation to enter into the adventure of a direct encounter with art and nature. The Museum dispenses with signposts altogether – visitors are free to find their own way in the extensive parkland and make their own discoveries of art and nature alike. This freedom of the spirit is at the heart of the Museum’s particular charm. A day at Museum Insel Hombroich wakens the senses." Last spring Katharina invited Inken Reinert, her sister Veronike Hinsberg an me to stay in her Hombroich-studio in for one week last spring while she was in Italy. Thanks to Katharina's hospitality we were able to create a collaborative drawing, surrounded by the beautiful landscape, the parks of the Hombroich island, the impressive architecture by and the eclectic collection of art.
