ARTIST INFO

Sascha Brylla is originally from a small town in Upper Bavaria, Germany. She now lives and works in Berlin, where she moved more than 10 years ago, studying a master’s degree at Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee, which she graduated from in 2016. 

In her childhood, Sascha Brylla got interested in art from an early stage; “During my childhood in Bavaria, the big question about art never crossed my mind. My father was a photographer and my mother owned a ceramics workshop in the basement. I was always surrounded by different art materials. Pens and brushes were readily available – it was only later that I started to realize the different skills involved, and my desire to study grew.”

Brylla’s works are reduced in color. Grey and pastel shades dominate the picture series. They have a relief-like surface and are slightly dusty, or carry other traces of processing. The motifs are ornamental, form patterns, and speak a formal language reminiscent of drawings or etchings. They are figurative, but in the process of being created undergo a kind of metamorphosis towards abstraction. Even though she plays with depictions of nature in her imagery, she does not feel obliged to observe nature as such. Rather, Brylla is interested in metaphorical sceneries, and the possibility to raise social questions.
