born Birgit Zartl has studied psychology and has worked in the
neurological department, specializing in cognitive behavioural therapy,
therapy through art and chromatics, before she became the artist she is
today. Her studies are closely related to her work, since she manages to
approach the unconscious and the darker parts of the human psyche. Most
frequently she chooses to paint landscapes and waterscapes employing
both canvas and paper making use of all sorts of different techniques.
In her work the outside world of bridges, buildings, relics, skylines,
and very frequently reflecting light becomes internalized and
transcends into a long forgotten realm of magic.
