Henriette Schuster’s work has always had a personal reference. She finds metaphors for her memories, experiences, observations, difficulties, hopes, and dreams. She is interested in the relationship (co-existence) of two elements and the balance they strike, how they move and fit together, applying these considerations to abstract geometrical forms.
Born in 1962 in Munich, Henriette studied architecture for several years before she trained in gold and silversmithing at the renowned Neugablonz Fachschule für Glas und Schmuck (Neugablonz College for Glass and Jewellery, Germany). After completing her studies, she was accepted into the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich as one of Otto Künzli’s first students in 1991, graduating in 2000.
For the past 13 years, Henriette has worked in a small studio in Munich, where she also has a gallery space. Here she exhibits the work of artists and colleagues, such as Lisa Walker, Karl Fritsch, Helen Britton, David Bielander, Volker Atrops, and Doris Betz during the Schmuck fair in Munich, reaching an international public.
Henriette exhibits her work internationally. She has been represented by The National since 2013. Conglomerates is her first solo exhibition at the gallery.
