Gudrun Dorsch

I spent my childhood in Munich. My mother, an artist herself, discovered my talent at an early age and encouraged me to develop it. Excessive, imaginative, and unconventional, I turned my various ideas into my first works of art and so, already at a young age, I received commissions for book illustrations and calendars.
Hieronymus Bosch, Salvator Dali, Gottfried Helnwein, H.R. Giger and Tommy Ungerer fascinated me with their symbols and hidden messages. Curious, I plunged into the unreal worlds of the artists and tried to decipher their messages.  Visual communication as non-verbal language, in any form, fascinated me.
Through my training as a graphic designer, I learned about other ways of communication and entered into employment relationships after successfully completing my studies. At the same time, I worked for various publishing houses, companies, and institutions. Despite animal caricatures, poetry booklets, and design/advertising commissions, my affinity for drawing people remained. I understood the movement of people and their expression as my own language and so I continued to study and draw bodies in partly bizarre movements. Continuously, I reduced my figures more and more. The obvious is covered, concealed, disguised… the formerly “wrapped” ones became more and more “bodiless”, consisting of ribbons, sensual and emotional beings. With my ” wrapped figures ” I have found my own unmistakable style.
