Ilka Meschke (born 1976 in Dresden) moves with her pictures between abstraction and objectivity. For her paintings she prefers mainly oil paint and Eitempera. Both techniques are suitable for both a light, aqueous as well as for a paste-like paint application. Her proximity to poetry unites in her works artistic directions such as still lifes, nudes and landscapes.Ilka Meschke studied painting at the academy of arts in Düsseldorf. She was a master student with Prof. Markus Lüpertz.
