Caroline von Grone, Hanover, 1963, has been developing a specific work in the genre of portrait painting. Her approach has always been conceptual. The motives are looking for them through the observation of reality, without inventing it, as she says. The artist works directly at the site, whether it is a project in an underground subway or in a construction site in a neighborhood, or in a gallery, or making portraits on request.
They are mostly everyday scenarios that interest you and that you investigate for long periods of time. She documents them with photos, sketches and pictures. “What seems flat in reality or in the photo, can get a great depth in the painting,” says Caroline von Grone. She describes herself in her works as a visual investigation.
