Artist based in Berlin – Drawing and Installation


Jenny Keuter explores rhythm and balance within linear compositions. Her dynamic graphical works oscillate between pace and precision, revealing a diversity of density and transparency. By means of surface, form, structure, proportion and colour she creates a broad repertoire of linear arrangements.


Each drawn line is a spontaneous, yet intended gesture, linking into a formation of interweaving and correlating strokes, which give an impression of continuous flow, where all lines seem to endlessly merge and diverge. What at first might appear as a harmonious picture, will upon closer look reveal a vibrant array of layered transparence.


The artist’s intention is to look beyond the descriptive nature of drawing. Her aim is to approach the making and perception of her work through sensation and imagination. Therefore she remains completely abstract, to enable an open-minded perception and individual interaction with the artwork. Her process of image making arises from a fascination for unconventional, non-verbal human expression.


Jenny was born in 1985 in Mönchengladbach, Germany. She graduated from the University of the Arts London in 2010 and from the University of Applied Sciences Aachen in 2011. She now lives and works in Berlin.
