Portfolio for Simone Bingemer - Commissionaportrait

Simone Bingemer was born in the third generation of a renowned artist family in Cologne, Germany. As a young girl she graduated in ballet from the Wuertemberg State Opera in Stuttgart under John Cranko, and in many respects this experience serves her well. Aged 16, she was the youngest pupil to enroll at the Art Academy of Cologne. After graduating in 1975 she worked as an illustrator Europe-wide for various international agencies. In 1995 Simone Bingemer focused her profession entirely on portrait painting, a wish long-cherished. Her psychological intuition, her unique trove of ideas, coupled with the dexterity of her craft, are manifested in her pictures that express a special, large vividness. Her ability to create »not just portraits« but also »pictures« have won her much recognition amongst clients at home and abroad.

Artist's Statement   Notice: I paint pastell portraits only.

Statement      The genuine interest I take in my clients, and my bonds with them, for the way they are, promote a relaxed atmosphere in which we can work together truthfully. With very little intervention on my side I let them move while I observe and listen, until I capture the image I sense is fitting. Like ballet dancers, the figures in my drawings make their »appearance«. It is a sensual and intuitive art of approaching the model in the dance that is portraiture. The ensuing portraits accentuate the character of a person with a few requisites and subtle colouring, and yet the viewer is confronted with a secret.
