Charlotte Trossbach’s photorealistic images seek beauty in the superficial and fleeting. Her motifs depict everyday things, such as pleasurable products or consumer goods, which are painstakingly replicated on canvas in elaborate photographic aesthetics. Topics include light and the exposed, the moving and the transparent. Elegant and powerful, gloss and reflections, color gradients in liquids and complicated refractions are transferred to the canvas and thus create an illusion of plasticity and material. Painting as a plea for the original. Pictures as pictures, detached from functionality.
Born 1985 in Mainz, Germany. She lives and works in Cologne.
