Marx paints these syntheses and recontextualizations of optical impressions, found objects and memories on paper and MDF boxes. In her site-specific settings, the real space also becomes part of the pictorial space. The artist often transforms the exhibition room with painted walls or paper webs creating seemingly organic environments.
Bettina Marx studied at the Kunstakademie Münster, where she graduated in 2009 as a master student of Cornelius Völker. She has been awarded several prizes and scholarships and had numerous solo and group exhibitions.
