About the Artist
(1953)Ika Huber was born in Freiburg in 1953. She studied (1973-80) at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Karlsruhe, under Peter Dreher and Georg Baselitz. Since 1980 she has lived in Freiburg and Munich.
Huber's work as a painter and as a graphic artist is characterized by the relation between the clear, gestural quality of her brush and the overall composition of each image. Of particular significance are the glowing colours, applied very carefully in many layers and determining the character of the individual elements within each image. Huber evolves her motifs out of plant and floral forms, landscapes or buildings and interior spaces, and constructs these as sweeping lines and layers of colour that often intertwine or interweave. Within Huber's oeuvre, painting, prints and other works on paper retain an equal importance.
