Artist Statement
Portrait of a Place - Site-Specific Drawings 2010


In her drawing work, the Berlin based artist Elvira Hufschmid focuses on images and thoughts that arise at particular locations or, with eyes blindfolded, emerge while sitting across from a person. 
Assuming that the images, unlike dreams, do not necessarily describe the artist´s unconscious, they are rather the product of a fleeting texture already inscribed in a place or emanating from a person. The image comes about as a sketchly articulation conceived through a two-way process and is a performative expression of the immediate setting through gesture drawing. The outcome is a cartography of notes generated by the reciprocal reverberations with the site or the person respectivly.

Artist Bio / CV
Elvira Hufschmid is a Berlin based freelance artist since 2002. She received her Diploma in »Sculpture« at the Hochschule der Bildenden Kuenste  Saar/ Germany and earned her Master of Fine Arts »New Genres« from the San Francisco Art Institute/USA in 2002.
Her drawings reflect the volatility of images, either those of thoughts or those which are found at places of passage, such as on highways or on television.
Since 2003 she taught at different Universities in Germany, like the Berlin University of the Arts, and most recently as visiting artist at Emily Carr University of Art & Design Vancouver/Canada. Since 2007 she collaborates with Margit Schild in an artist duo Schild & Hufschmid in the field of »processes of artistic transformation«.
