Nina K. Jurk - Landscapes

Her paintings have been presented in numerous group and solo exhibitions, most recently at the Galerie von&von in Nuremberg, the Inselgalerie in Berlin, the Städtische Galerie im Leeren Beutel in Regensburg, the Galerie Löhrl in Mönchengladbach and the Museum für Bildende Künste Leipzig.

Nina K. Jurk draws her work from the potential of walking and the direct contact with nature that comes with it. In today's world, this way of working is a statement.

The depiction of landscapes has a special place within her oeuvre. Already in 2021, the documentary film "Caspar David Friedrich. Wanderer between the Worlds" by Nicola Graef discussed the connection between N. K. Jürk's contemporary landscape paintings and the romantic paintings of C. D. Friedrich.

The focus of this personal exhibition is on works created after a crossing of the Alps in the summer of 2022. Her project "On foot across the Alps - from Munich to the 59th Venice Biennale." was supported by the Stiftung Kunstfonds with a working grant.
