Layer by layer
I warmly welcome you to my website and would like to share a little bit of the thoughts that drive me:

In the course of our lives we develop and have good, but also less good experiences. We are aware of some of them, we forget others. They join the many layers of our consciousness.

The more we become aware of these many different "layers of life", the more we are able to understand our life.

And it is the same with the many layers that I use in my painting. It is only through the multi-layered processing that images emerge for me that tell of the depth and intensity of life.

I hope you enjoy exploring the pictures and information on my site!

" ... "

"The paintings of Bettina Hachmann are rather herself, a mirror of the artist, figure, landscape, colour on canvas, order and chaos as well as the desire to celebrate again and again the process of emotions through the painted picture."

"As elusive, supersensuous manifestations of a supremely autonomous and intellectually charged aesthetic, as perplexing as they are palpable, they have the power to carry the graphic and painterly tradition of the canon into the future in a way that is not just intelligible, but exciting."

"In Hachmann’s case, moreover, there is not just the refinement of subtly staggered lines and fine, spidery webs, but also a narrative and dramatic complexity ..."
