Bettina scholz
b. 1979, based in Berlin, DE

Inspired by music, film and literature, Bettina Scholz creates pulsating pictorial organisms with a wide range of painting techniques. Besides sculpture and paintings on canvas,
Scholz is known for complex paintings framed behind partly painted glass which remind of snapshots of frozen movement and floating processes
.
They remind us of microscopic views created by chemical processes, but also of cosmic spheres and off-world landscapes. These atmospherically charged scenarios are inspired from science fiction, techno and classic music, creating a visual, synesthetic connection between its different art forms.

'BLACK ALBUM / WHITE CUBE': VISUAL ARTISTS EXPLORE COLLECTIVE RESISTANCE IN MUSIC

It’s precisely the visceral immateriality of music that escapes the scope and authority of predicative language and semiotics. Berlin-based painter Bettina Scholz translates this immateriality in her dystopic triptych, individually titled “Blade Runner 2049,” “Qualm,” and “Solaris.”  Taking inspiration from Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer’s Blade Runner 2049 film score and Helena Hauff’s gritty, acid-soaked album Qualm, Scholz’s synesthetic process forms subliminally, resulting in raucous and even gothic abstractions in her acrylic glass paintings. Referencing this synesthesia, Scholz comments, “When I hear music, I see colors in my mind.”
