"It's Just a Thought" by Bettina Charlotte Radatz 14 July - 15 September 2018
Bettina Charlotte Radatz
It's Just a Thought
An Exhibition of Paintings, Ceramics and Sculpture
An exhibition of paintings by this German-born Madeira-based artist. Her art has turned more into the abstract and sometimes metaphysical. Her special ability is intuitive painting in a gestural expressive way.
Bettina Charlotte’s career as an artist began after a long life of exploration. Although she has traveled around geographically too, Berlin/ Germany had been her base for 54 years – in 2013 this has changed as she decided to move to the Portuguese island of Madeira.
Before starting her artistic career Bettina Charlotte has explored different professions: she travelled the world as flight attendant for Lufthansa, she learned to be and worked as professional photographer, studied adult education and worked with adults for many years, was self employed and worked as systemic life coach in Berlin, Germany – these professions have given her a wide horizon of different elements of life. Because of her constant drive to be creative, art has always accompanied her during times of other professions and in 2013 she finally decided to work as full time artist when she moved to the island of Madeira to be part of the local artist community.
Perhaps because of all this together–getting to know so many earthly professions–her art has turned more into the abstract and sometimes metaphysical. Her special ability is intuitive painting in a gestural expressive way – she calls it “The Art to Listen to Your Heart” which she also teaches in workshops in Berlin/ Germany and Funchal, Madeira.
