Ute Hillenbrand

 

„It was always there“… replies Ute Hillenbrand in response to the question as to when her talent and artistic uniqueness appeared for the first time.

 

For a long time, she contributed her creativity to large international projects, in which the extraordinary, prominent representations of objects played a decisive role in the success. However, she has now been dedicating herselfexclusively to her passion and her ideas for many years and is meanwhile devoted entirely to art.

Today, the artist belongs to the acclaimed international art scene. International art openings, commissioned work from many countries and time and again the discovery of the "new" are meanwhile part of Hillenbrand’s life and it seems as though she draws from an inexhaustible pool of fantasies.

 

--> Her works, which are regarded as unique in her technique, are characterised by their spatial reality. Commonplace objects - fruit, details from nature and everyday life - painted with oil pastels on polished steel or aluminium plates and coated with an extraordinary glaze unique to her, appear to float against the background. Isolated, decoupled, a scene from which the viewer finds it difficult to avert his gaze. It is precisely this technique, which lends the art an ever-changing expression at different times of the day and under different lighting conditions, that is unique in its succinctness.

 

Although Ute Hillenbrand is meanwhile represented and even present at many national and international events, she always returns to her adopted home, the island of Sylt. It is this place in particular that inspires her time and again to portray motifs of this uniquely-lit environment, in addition to the very unusual works.

The Sound of Sea …

 

A very special piece of fine arts left the studio for Osnabrück. The choice of the right motiv and the workmanship hold the artist in her hands and with the 150 x 150 cm large artwork made of oilpastels on stainless steel, she succeeded in setting a remarkable focus. On closer inspection some Swarovski Cristals are twinkeling to show awesome lightreflections in the breakwater.

10,000 euros for a roofed wicker beach chair!

 

On May 3, 2010 this year’s charity dinner to benefit the “Roter Keil” network was held in the team hotel of legendary German football club Borussia Dortmund (BVB). At the event BVB players Sebastian Kehl and Roman Weidenfeller, acting as angels of mercy for this network against child prostitution, traded in their jerseys for cooking aprons.
One of the best moments of the evening was the auction emceed by legendary sports journalist, Werner Hansch. The highlight of this auction was a one-of-a-kind roofed wicker beach chair made available to “Roter Keil” by the special Buxtehude manufacturer “Strandkorb Manufaktur” and Ute Hillenbrand, who created the textile design. The beach chair ultimately came under the hammer for far more than 10,000 euros.
