Johanna Leipold was born in Munich/Germany on 4thJan.1947. After studying Art Education at Munich and moving to Austria, she also took art classes with F.P.Hofbauer. Johanna Leipold prefers painting acrylics on canvas and focuses on expressive figure paintings. She emphatically employs colors to describe people´s physiognomy and postures. That way she manages to point with a satiric undertone to some idiosyncrasies of the persons portrayed. By isolating the people from their usual surrounding, these idiosyncrasies appear to be even greater. Johanna Leipold can look back on numerous exhibitions in Europe. In 2007and 2008, she successfully presented select works at the Artexpo, and she will participate with Galerie Artodrome in the Artexpo a third time in 2009. (Galerie Artodrome)
My work is characterized by joyful painting experiments on big canvases.
Multiple layering of color fields creates picturesque areas. In these, I see many imaginative designed faces, figures and/or animals. Using graphical means of work, I can intensify and illustrate my cognation to untrained observers too.
