Landen, Beate


Beate Landen was born in Ludwigshafen/Germany on 20th Febr. 1952. First she studied biology from which she graduated as doctor and founded the LeukämieHilfe Munich e.V. Later she turned to painting, studied drawing in the USA and took classes among others with Markus Lüpertz and Hermann Nitsch. Beate Landen was awarded the Bundesverdientsorden of the German state. Also, since 2007 until 2013 , she has been president of the artists´ association of the Steiermark/ Austria.

In her works, Beate Landen is trying to reveal the secrets of her paintings only little by little. Glancing swiftly at her paintings is not enough to understand them. It takes some time to discover fully and appreciate what is in the paintings.Landen uses different materials, colour s and pigments on her collages and assemblages that sometimes seem to oppose each other and correspond without words.

Beate Landen has shown her works worldwide and will present a selection of them at art fairs worldwide with LDXArtodrome Gallery.
