Annette Schröter has perfected her technique of large-sized paper cuts. Within this medium, she questions the world of advertising and press as well as the contemporary scenery of cities and countryside. The artist makes the ambivalence and the deceptive beauty of the pictures a subject of discussion. Pictures of technical installations appear in romantic landscape, corporate logos as decorative elements in her paper cuts.
Annette Schröter (*1956, Meissen, Germany) studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig with Berhard Heisig. She held several lectureships at different Academies of Fine Arts such as in Halle and in Dresden before she was appointed professor in Leipzig. Institutions that presented the artist in solo shows include Museum der Bildenden Künste in Leipzig, Museum Junge Kunst in Frankfurt and Kunsthalle in Erfurt.
