Gabriele Musebrink – Experimental Painting

Stations / Vita

Gabriele Musebrink was born in Essen in 1955. From 1975 till 1983 she studied arts - among other subjects – at Folkwang School in Essen-Werden and at the Comprehensive University Essen.

In 1983 she moves into a loft apartment in the south of Essen. The rooms were used as a studio before already, among others by one of her former professors, Rudolf Knubel and originally belonged to a printery. In 1996 she expands and moves into further parts of the building complex: That is the start of her present studio plus the rooms for her "Hofwerkstatt" (courtyard working shop) with the integrated artschool Musebrink. Further information under: www.hofwerkstatt.de and www.kunstschule-musebrink.de

From 1983 till 1992 after having finished her studies she first is self- employed as a graphic and visual artist, leads workshops in "free painting", arranges exhibitions for the Diocese of Essen, the Old Synagoge Essen, the Archaeological Museum Altenessen at that time and then apart from being self-employed works on a regular basis for the Ruhrlandmuseum Essen for eight years arranging exhibitions (emphasis on room-installations and graphic arts).
In 1992 she hands in her notice to be self-employed again exclusively. She stays a resident in Essen. Until 2002, however, together with her then husband she stays in Montescudaio (Italy) for longer periods. On her own she goes on walks in Norway and stays for some time. Italy as well as Norway touch deepest layers of her soul and the experiences of that time inspire her to a high materialization in her paintings.
In 1997 she sets up the "Hofwerkstatt" in the courtyard of the former printery with her own artschool - it is a cultural institution for arts, for exhibitions and far-eastern movement and concentration disciplines. About 10 teachers are working in her school. With this school a vision of hers comes true: a school that doesn´t play the schoolmaster but views a problem from different sides. She now lives together with the former architect and present Satzen teacher (school of the turn to inner life) Hans Steinke in the south of Essen.
Together with him she attended a more than four year consciousness training from 2000 – 2005 with the German-English Awvaita teacher Om C. Parkin. This training was fundamentally clearing and building up strength in her life: the eye-opener to an expanding view of the inner life. In Manuel Schoch, healer and founder of the time Therapy she in 2008 recognized the simple existence and being in good keeping in everything.
Since a few years she appears at public art events, where she demonstrates to people, how she works. She exposes herself to questions of the public concerning techniques, courage, authenticity and creativity. Her exhibition activities so far covered Germany and Europe.


Erika John – Experimental Printing Techniques & Painting


Erika John, who lives in Wendland and Mallorca is touched and involved in what is happening around her. Her art reflects her inner dialogue that revolves around both politically explosive issues, and small events that move her heart.

Her work in graphic design and painting have symbolizing themes: "brittle", "cracks", "desierto" (Spanish for desert), which point to the fragility and destruction of human kind and nature.
In the center (of her work) is the human being with its alienation from itself, the earth, the animals, and their habitat. It is about looking behind the scenes, to resolve the contradiction of beauty and decay.

In her work Erika John has dealt with experimental printing techniques, and developed a special technique of painting on coated wood panels, instead using of the usual woodcut. The results are similar to the unique monotypes that reflect the intuitive working method of Erika John. She leaves room for the material and the means to find their own way.

Klaus Schröder – Sculpture Wood / Metal


The sculptor Klaus Schröder, Born in 1953, presents a series of works with the matter wood and iron in dialogue, where he uses the creative means of reflection. The different expression of wood and iron Schroeder compensates with the proportions. His abstract work avoids any possibillity of association and is dedicated to the sculpture itself as a form of expression.

Stefanie Wollenhaupt – Sculpture Stone / Wood

1961 Born in 1961 in Saarland
1981-1983 study graphic design in Saarbrücken with Professor O.Hohlweck
1983-1990 Art studies focusing sculpture
seit 1998 working as an art and craft teacher at the Waldorf School Obernberg


Stefanie Wollenhaupt is interested in the effect of the sculpture to the space. She is aware that each sculpture is forming an invisible but perceptible space around (surroundings?). Her work in wood or stone is telling stories, which the viewer is invited to help shape by going into a dialog with that space. Stefanie Wollenhaupt's including attitude towards the viewer is evident in her work.

Dan Hepperle – Painting

1956 - Born in Cologne
1980-1985 - Studies in Art and Geography at the University of Cologne
with the conclusion first and 2 State Exam
in 1985 - a freelance painter
1992-1996 - Head of Youth Art Cologne
1999 - co-founder of Street Gallery Lindenthal
2000-2002 - lecturer in painting at the University of Cologne
in 2005 - co-founder of the Eifel studio days


Light is reflected in its purest appearance as the color white and refers to something non-Physical, Metaphysical. Dan Hepperles paintings revolve around the color white. With all its infinite range of variations it allows him to create constantly new moods and sounds, which focus on light itself. Space is a second important issue for his work and is reflected as a line that enters the picture, playing, dancing, lyrical or even slightly harsh and straight.

Huguette Helmann – Painting and Sculpture

Born in Brussels in 1939, Huguette Helmann worked since her earliest childhood with artistic expression. This she could develop during her seven-year study at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels.

As a professor of drawing at the Royal College of Ganshoren, she maintained contact with artistic circles, and is enrolled in the Academy of Roger Somville Boitsfort.

She attended the workshop of Daniel Van den Driessche. Over the years, numerous works have been created where her passion is expressed in the use of bright colors. Her expressive power and accuracy of the attitudes are particularly evident in the sculptures, their bulls, nudes and portraits.


Huguette Helmann's artistic journey began with the painting. She painted nudes, landscapes, flowers, in large spiritual compositions. This was followed by the sculpture. She modeled acts, then angels, then bulls, last ones inspired by her partner, who was a portugese bullfighter. She returned to painting and started with woodcuts.

"My work is constantly changing. Just like I'm on the road to change, so also becomes my creation, and also the techniques and my way of expressing myself."
Whatever her means of expression is, in her work Huguette Helmann always explores the expression of movement and light.

Bettina Hachmann – Painting

Bettina Hachmann was born in 1967 in Geldern.
In 1996 she founded the art school "Malwerkstatt", and started to give art classes and workshops.
Since 1999, she has participated in many exhibitions.


In Bettina Hachmann’s work the colors white, gray and black are dominating. These colors for her are not only dark or signs of depression. They are rather a phase in the cycle of nature, where the energy is going inwards and reflection is able to happen. They are symbolizing a period without which the germination and fertilization, and the birth of new life would not be possible.

Despite the spare use of color her paintings do not appear monotonous. With energetic surface machining, color fills and blurring she creates a complexity that takes the viewer into the depths. In many of her works there is a clear reference to the landscape but more and more often these signs of landscape are reduced to the horizon area. Hachmann is interested in the question how much a landscape really needs to be recognized as such, therefore recently even the last indications are removed, with only gentle gradients remaining.


Dieter Ladewig – Painting

Dieter Ladewig was born in 1953 in Blankenburg.
His first artistic training began in 1970 as a two-year internship
in the painting studio of the theatre of the city Cottbus.
From 1974-1977 he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden,
and from 1977-79 he was involved in stage painting in Cottbus.
Since then he has worked as a freelance painter.

2003 Magdeburg / Aktsymposium


Dieter Ladewig is interested in the paradox of the figurative and the abstract, and in the balance of objects and non-objects. His paintings are created as stable as necessary and as open as possible. By looking at his pictures, both visual and sensational spaces open up.

So Ladewig dissolves the world into sensations. The artist and work of art create an indivisible unit. Ladewig searches for the right expression, and so his paintings reveal his inner and outer experiments, inspired by music he heard while painting. Ladewig is a painter of truthfulness, without any compromises in using color and form.


Ulrich Krämer – Sculpture

Ulrich Krämer was born in 1963 in Dusseldorf. From 1989-92 was his artistic training and work with the sculptor Herbert Lungwitz. After that his freelance work as a sculptor began. Since 1995 he has worked as a lecturer in the field of steel sculpturing.

The material of the sculptor Ulrich Krämer is steel. Krämer was born in a "steel-region," the Ruhr. His material, which is usually reserved for industrial processes, unfolds in surprising new forms by the playful and passionate hand of touch of the artist. In spite of the hardness and impact of the material, Krämer manages to create delicate surfaces and soft, vulnerable designed shapes.

This contrast is one of the intentions of Ulrich Krämer’s work. The rough surfaces are the result of degradation, an energy that fascinates the artist. Destruction is a prerequisite, and thus part of any transformation, and is celebrated with joy by Krämer. By the process of destruction, the differences and contradictions of life become integrated. His sculptures convey an unconventionality that is beyond smooth and decorated surfaces.
