Christine SeiterleBiography

1969 - born 2nd September in Schaffhausen, Switzerland

1985 - 1990 studies of Design, Painting and Drawing in Switzerland, Austria and Germany

Since 1990 painter and illustrator, lives and works in Schaffhausen, Switzerland and Paris, travels and makes further studies in Norway, Italy, Canada and New York City.

Christine Seiterle had orders and purchases from different institutions in Switzerland, i.e. the Museum Allerheiligen in Schaffhausen and from the Town and Kanton of Schaffhausen.

Christine Seiterle’s work shows a great painterly and drawingly sureness, imagination, intuition and narrative pleasure. She creates this by intensively looking for years, by experiencing, sketching and drawing her environment.

The composition of a picture is often intentionally severe and concentrated to the essential. This creates interesting orders which are bringing the meaning of the picture to the point.

Christine’s paintings are talking about everyday things and scenes: People resting or moving, between heaven and earth, in their natural surroundings or built environment. And still, they haunt us directly.

She has a good look at people in movement, by observing their activities in city streets. Taken out of context of space and time by the uniform grey-white background, she is leading our attention to the different patterns of human behaviour and their movements in a very exciting way.

Her pictures are multilayered and ambiguous. One feels behind the common figures and scenes something spiritual shimmering through - thoughts, memories, hopes, wishes, imaginations. Some figures appear in paradisiacal transported light. We realise that dreams and worlds in between are belonging to life.

Christine employs various moods of light and emotional colour found in the course of our daily lives. Her imaginations build new relationships in a timeless outer and inner world full of sound, rhythm and mystery, where we are safely held under the canopy of the sky.

Christine’s paintings seem to breath and to sound. They tell us “Life is beautiful”. They nurse and fulfil us always again.
