Evelyn Kuwertz was born in Bad Aussee, Austria. She lives and works between Berlin and the southwest of France. Her approach brings together 2 major themes: the city as an urban reality and the image of man.

The images of the city become a primordial subject that she transforms into metaphors of time and the ephemeral. For almost twenty years, in the 1980s and 1990s, she produced a series of paintings on the city of West Berlin, which was then in the midst of reconstruction. A true testimony of her time, her works illustrate the major projects of these two decades: Potsdamer Platz (1992-1995), the reconstruction of the Esplanade, the Hotel Adlon, the Reichstag, the Berlin Mitte and the Neues Museum (1997-1999).

From the 2000s onwards, his interest also extended to other European cities, starting with Toulouse and continuing with Paris, Barcelona and Rome. These canvases are not only representative: she chooses to show her own perception of the places visited and gives a subjective view of her first impressions as a painter. Reality and imagination interpenetrate.

At the same time, Evelyn Kuwertz devotes part of her research to the movement of human figures. She works with dancers during the rehearsals of the Ballet du Sacre du printemps at the Opéra de Toulouse and "Caravaggio" at the Staatsballett in Berlin. The movements of the dancers merge with the movements of the brushes on the canvas.

Since 2004 she has been undertaking a series of "taken from life": characters drawn by a sketch of clothing that suggest a contemporary world. A series of paintings representing individuals moving in an urban field. These sequences of interlocking movements fill the canvas and contrast with superimposed backgrounds and fragments of urban architecture often in abyss. The composition and structure remain transparent and light while retaining a multitude of details.

Evelyn Kuwertz' works are exhibited in Germany (Berlin, Hamburg, Bonn), England (London) and France (Toulouse, Tarbes, Montauban, Cahor, Albi). Her paintings can be found in many private and public collections.
