Tirza

TIRZA MATTER

I paint the way I think: complex, ornamental, associative, chaotic, disoriented, multi-layered. Compared to my inner life, the large-format worlds in oil also invite outsiders to immerse themselves in them.

Using associatively collected and combined samples of image material,

I research the image and painting, but also social issues. Areas of this research are the color, the ornament as well as the construction and deconstruction.

BIO

I live and work in Lucerne. From 2010-2014 I studied art and mediation at the University of Art & Design in Lucerne. In the following seven years I completed my HF degree in business administration next to my artistic projects. Since 2019 I‘ve been working part time as a project manager, which allows me to focus intensively on my artistic work. In August 2021 I started with the Master in Fine Arts, Major in Critical Image Practices in Lucerne.
