Ute Kledt

Time and timeless longings, portraits on paperplates, “Riechard” and its serendipity, “Femmes natales”, “Colour fishing” in Brittany, “Miles from anywhere” Island, “Happy waters” in Lake of Constance, Frozen Books in “Papier&was”, “Pleasant and unpleasant places”… keywords of my works.

Painting, illustrating, fotographing, writing. I have exhibited in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Iceland. Two given residencies in Pont-Aven (France) and Iceland (Seydisfjordur)

My work is inspired by nature, water, landscapes, nocturnes, portraits and themes like “relationships”.
