Viola Bittls abstract oil on canvas paintings and works on paper stand alone; no picture resembles another. They can be discreetly and tersely described as the results of a long, intense process that, in images and superimpositions, hides the time that flows into the work. Her paintings are themselves, they “tell” only themselves, often through the many, not directly visible overlays of considerable weight. They are the deduction of all layers and interventions. They sediment memory and remembrance, enriched perceptions, emptiness, the unknown next. (Jean-Christophe Ammann)

Viola Bittl born in 1980 in Bavaria, Germany.  She studied at the Art Academy in Munich by professor Sean Scully and further studied and graduated in 2011 from Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main by Professor Christa Näher.
