Thore Kienscherf Biography
The Art of Thore KienscherfThe pictures of models display my perception on the sensuality of advertising images and fashion photography. In my pictures the model-women are dissociated from the advertised products and become the motifs of independent pictures. I do not critizise the ideal of beauty propagated by the media. What I do is trying to understand and express what this ideal is constituted of, this ideal which is about outward qualities but obviously seems to mean more than that.Since I live in Berlin, it is also temptative for me to picture adequate scenes of this city in my paintings. Both themes, models and the city, are combined by displaying the women on huge posters, attached to the buildings.My way of painting has changed from a smooth style with emphasis on details towards a paste-like and freer way. Consequently the paint is applied with a spattle, so I avoid getting lost in too many details and can give more alternatives of interpretation to the eyes of the viewers.
 
Education:
I was born 1974 in Hamburg, grew up at Lake Constance and live in Berlin since 1995. In 2001 I started painting with oil colors learning by myself, and have presented my artwork in various exhibitions in Germany and other European countries.
