Artist: Asta von Unger

Asta von Unger, who was a master student with Günther Förg 2010, works as a painter and is process-oriented. Her mostly large-format works shine powerfully and are light and energetic. It is as if she wants to explore all of the material’s (the paint’s and the medium’s) options.

She also studied Philosophy, Literature and Communication Sciences with Umberto Eco: a fact which is not insignificant for the way she works. She accumulates knowledge first, then frees herself of it with the stroke of a brush. Asta von Unger lives and works in Munich.
