About Inga
Inga Wilkens (b. 1987) is a painter living and working between Hamburg, Berlin and Munich, Germany. Originally from a small artist village named Fischerhude in Northern Germany, art was all around her when she grew up. Fascinated from an early age by Impressionism and the aesthetic values of Zen, her intuitive use of color and arresting play with shadow strives for simplicity and lucidity. Her oil and acrylic paintings hover towards abstraction and minimalism, yet breathe the clean air and convey the meditative silence stemming from a deeply felt connection with nature. Her works evoke the earthliness of colors or the proximity of a clear night sky, a sense of freedom one only finds in the essence of things. Inga does not so much pre-compose her paintings; she rather creates them intuitively, as spontaneous reactions to the present moment. Her practice values process and embraces the chaotic, yet always maintains a compositional centeredness that never makes her works feel out of balance.

I am a clay illustrator. Like most of us, I started playing around with clay at a very young age. Unlike most of us, I continued my practice right through my childhood and into adulthood. Nowadays I view my lumps of clay with the same wide-eyed, open-ended imagination that I did as a child, but now I take it to a level of refinement and expression, achievable only through thousands of hours of practice and a true love for my art. And now I hardly ever eat the clay.
