ABOUT THE ARTIST
“Everything I create is deliberately ambiguous. I want to guide you to look carefully, attentively, fully: First at everything in the world I have created for myself, and then at everything in yours. My goal is to inspire you to look not just at all that is, but all that can be.”
Born in Nuremberg, Germany in 1959, Friederike Oeser first studied Graphic Design in Munich before moving to London to further develop her skills. Later, inspired by trips to Asia and Africa, she returned to Germany and began her formal career creating oil pastel and acrylic works, while also lecturing on art and drawing at the prestigious IFOG Akademie in Munich.
Having shown throughout Asia, Europe, and the United States, her works have been the subject of numerous exhibitions, among them the Walter Bischoff Galleries in Berlin and Stuttgart, Germany, as well as Seoul, Korea; Städtische Galerie, Rosenheim; ZetaEffe Galleria Arte Contemporanea, Florence; Galerie Pałacu Vauxhall and Centrum Kultury w Krzeszowicach in Cracow, Poland; and the Mt. San Antonio Gallery in Los Angeles, California.
Frequent visits to the United States in the past three years have been the source of new inspiration for Oeser, resulting in cut-outs, aluminum sculptures and silkscreen printing on canvas. With names like “Madison Avenue,” “Times Square,” and “99 Gansevoort Street” she is rapidly gaining a following among American collectors and gallerists alike.
Ms. Oeser’s works are included in the public collections of the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen and Mayersche Hofkunstanstalt für Glas und Mosaik in Munich; the Jean Pierre Vidit Collection in Metz, France; the Museum Villa Haiss in Germany, the Rose Hotel, Bangkok; the Museum voor Vlakglas- en Emaillekunst, Ravenstein, Netherlands; the Porsche Colección de Arte, in Vigo, Spain, in addition to private collections in China, Italy, Korea, and the United States.
