Alvarez, Katrin

Biography:

Katrin Alvarez was born in Güstrow/ Germany on July 9, 1944. She successfully graduated from her studies of Law, worked as an editor and issued several satires and a novel. In 2007, she won the Allan Edwards Award der Federation of Canadian Painters (SFCA) in Vancouver and was granted the Grande Médaille d’Or M.C.A. Cannes Azur in 2012. In 2013, she won the first prize of the Leonardo Awards(Applied Arts)  from the Chianciano Art Museum.

Katrin Alvarez sees life through the eyes of an editor; however, as artist she does not use words, but describes life with colour and line. The artist includes and finds artistic expression for all aspects of life, both the beautiful and positive sides as well as the dark and negative sides of being. The Neurologist Dr. Gosciniak once wrote about her works: ‘Alvarez’ paintings neither want to explain, nor educate , nor teach- they do not contain any message either. However, they leave a strong imprint on the viewers’ mind. As if a stone cast into a lake, the emotions and dreams disseminate like ripples, and a new way to the Inner self inside opens up.’

Alvarez’ paintings unite technical skills with a multidimensional pictorial language, thus leading to a unique way of expression, a so called personal “fingerprint’, a quality frequent called for, but seldom achieved.

Katrin Alvarez has successfully shown her works in many exhibitions worldwide. She is represented by LDXArtodrome Gallery worldwide.
