introduction   curriculum vitae   
Over the past year Beth Namenwirth has been making rather small paintings. She tries to make them as quick as possible because she discovered that speed improves the expressiveness and makes the paint look alive. Also does she like the paint to be thick and rich, so one can really see that the image is painted. Usually she chooses a subject which she finds whimsicle, awkward or subjects she has strong feelings about. These can be everyday life situations or political topics. By combining several visual elements in the painting a new artificial reality is created. Each simple everyday objest and each person in her paintings is depictsedwith visible pleasure and unmistakable humor.
