In order to leave room for interpretation and imagination, my paintings are only named by colour.
When interpreting the genre of painting landscapes, I have forged my own path: my work
generally includes wood for the basic and fabrics, is created in a multi-layered, flowing manner and
consists of a choreography of threads woven into the image space – as a constellation of painting and drawing.

About Renate Faeth
Renate lives in the northern part of Germany near the „UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea“.
She sees her artwork in the wake of the nordic tradition of landscape painting: where the land meets the sea, a unique atmosphere is created. Renate´s art is dedicated to this ever-changing landscape.
Reeds, moors, shores, lakes and horizons are some of the series on which she continuously works.
The outer layers of her work always carry a certain degree of roughness, cracks in the dark repoussoir and in the heavy relief, which are caused by the complexity of the painting´s mass.
This suggests weathering and also creates a hint of transience and the past.
In contrast to this, and as a painterly countermovement, she obscures the contours and creates gentle
transitions into the depths, giving space to what is no longer topographical.
On the horizon, heaven, earth and water meet. Freedom and infinity can be felt. Everything merges and is connected. Above and below belong together, like yesterday and tomorrow.
In Renate´s paintings, the end of the shore is always close, because in the border regions near the water, there is still the solid, but also uncertain ground. As has always been the case, this area is facing a clash between the elements and the tides that shape both the people and the landscape.
Beauty and roughness balance each other.
Since her childhood, growing up by the harbour at her father´s boat and yacht factory and in a family with maritime backgrounds based at the river Ems, near the boarder of the Netherlands, these natural experiences have exerted on her an aesthetic fascination.
Renate holds a degree in „Work and Technology“, by the University of Education, Göttingen, Germany, then turned to Fine Arts and graduated at the „New Art School“ in Zurich, Switzerland.
She is a member of the German „Artists Professioal Society (BBK)“ in Lower Saxony, Group Oldenburg, and was founding member of several Art Groups, such as the „Graphic Association Leer“, where she practised Lithography. For many years she also taught children´s art classes at the „School of Art“ at Kunsthalle Emden, Foundation Henri Nannen, Germany.
She has exhibited both domestically and internationally, was nominated four times in various Art Prize exhibitions and won an Award in 2017 at the „Auf den ersten Blick“ exhibition in Rastede, Germany.
