Claudia Ahlering: Parasite Nature
The group of works in this exhibition of new oil paintings by Claudia Ahlering, who lives and works in Hamburg, Germany, displays the artist’s pursuit of colorful and energetic realistic art. The nature motives, inspired by forerunners Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller, Ferdinand Hodler and others, display Ahlering’s German surroundings and don’t always focus on the idyll. Every piece was created especially for this exhibition, which is Ahlering’s fifth solo show in Japan.
Ahlering studied fine arts and painting in her native Germany and on scholarship at the École-des-Beaux-Arts in Paris. She has held solo shows in Hamburg, Berlin, London and Tokyo and she has participated in multiple group shows at home and abroad.
