Judith Heinsohn (Hamburg, 1967) worked on a large scale with industrial ceramics and all of here work has a monumental appearance. Her work shows a wide variety of ceramic methods that come forth from an unwavering need for experiment. Her figuration shows battered human figures, but there is always a deeply felt human identity behind the apparent rough skin. Some of her work is not far removed from the German neo-expressionists like Markus Lupertz, but the refined quality of Heinsohn’s work easily competes with it.
Heinsohn moved from Germany to Amsterdam in 1987 and studied sculpture at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy from 1988 to 1994. She was a guest teacher at the Rietveld Academy in 1995 and 2013. Since 1993 she exhibited regularly in the Netherlands with renowned institutions and took part in a variety of international projects.
