Almut Heise is a contemporary German painter whose portraiture blends elements of the surrealist masters of the 1930’s with her own strikingly unique vision. She has been teaching art, in Germany as a professor, for almost 30 years.  What I like most about these particular paintings is how much they confirm my feelings about artists in my age cohort (I was born in 1941) in Germany.  They’re as uncompromising as Baader meinhoff; as direct as Joseph K’s arrest one fine morning; and as hard as industrial diamonds.    

There follows a brief biography of Ms. Heise at artnet’s Artist Works Catalogues and five of her portraiture paintings there.

“1944: Born in Celle, Germany. 

1965-1967: Studies painting with Günter König and Klaus-Jürgen Fischer at the staatl. Hochschulinstitut für Kunst und Werkerziehung in Mainz, Germany.

I have a law degree (Stanford, 66') but have never practiced. Instead, from 1967 through 1977, I tried to contribute to the revolution in America. As unsuccessful as everyone else over that decade, in 1978 I went to work for the U.S. Forest (more...)
