Biography of Marta Melniczuk

Marta Melniczuk, married Oberrauch (Collalbo, Renon, Italia), stateless ukrainian 1949 born in Wilfingen, district Rottweil, studied from 1968 to 1975 with a scholarship by Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes highschool-teaching at the university of Tübingen and at the University Institute for Drawing. 1993 doctorate at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich. Teaching at the Thomas Mann-Highschool in Munich. Advanced artistic training as a private student of L.Fischach from 1993 to 1997. Courses in etching with S. Wehmeier, lithography with K.Imhof, and glassart with T.Boissel in Munich, courses for art teachers at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste München.

„The key to Marta Melniczuk´s art lies in catching the transparency of psychic experiencies both stagnation and drive, like a rainbow produced by the sun after the pouring rain is over.“ (Zoreslawa Kowal: Musische Dimensionen, in NIKE, New Art in Europe, No 64, p.10).
Numerous exhibitions and publications in Germany and abroad show the concentrated colour range and the dynamic movement of Marta Melniczuk´s artistic world. She concentrates on connections between language and painting – her painted poetic stories had been translated into Ukainian and Japanese – on the other hand she tries to visualize music in paintings, where she chose compositions by Liszt, Debussy, Satie, Prokofiev and Rachmaninow.

Etchings from her recent period emphazise the outlines while colour is reduced. Immediate impressions dominate the artistic realisation; another variation of her ability to express herself as an artist.
While reducing her means of design, the essence of things meets the eyes of the spectator. After drawing her personal preference of artistic technics are graphic printing, etching, copper engraving, and lithography.
Her artworks are in public and private collections.
