Jutta Brandt-Stracke

Jutta Brandt-Stracke, Arabesque.

Jutta Brandt-Stracke was born in the Ruhr area, the  region that once was the eco-nomical centre of coalmines and steel production of Germany. Here she spent her childhood an her youth. In the 1975 she and her parents moved to the Rhine area. Today she still is living and working in Dusseldorf.While she went to school, she was lucky to meet Gerhard Wessel, a German ex-pressionistic artist. He became her first teacher.Her father was a coalminer and her family never really wealthy. So she did not have the opportunity to study arts. Instead she made a professional career at the public administration, where she worked from 1975 to 2005.But she never stopped painting, her private studies and permanent skill enhance-ment. Artists like Hannes Loos and Hedwig Rogge became her teachers. 2010 she joined the master class of Herb Schiffer, the price winner of the Dürener price of artists 2011. 

Paradise Lost

Her lifelong artistic work concentrates on certain themes:The invisible, the unconscious, dreams, natural processes in relationships, en-ergies and power. Very often she activates symbols and pictures of fairy tales and myths.
“ I’m not interested in the motor, but in the power, that makes it go,” she says.She believes devoutly that there exists something like a data bank of archetypes in the human soul, that is available and understandable for every human being of the world.
For Jutta Brandt-Stracke this is the reason why art develops its incredible power of communication.


Since 2005 she concentrates exclusively on her art as a free artist. Since then – of course – she expanded her exhibition work. Her work could be seen in the museums of Brüggen and Soest, in several galleries all over Germany, but also during public events.2011 her exhibition “IM LICHTE” was advanced by the town of Düsseldorf.



You also can find some of her works in the public area. 2009 the Chamber of commerce Dusseldorf bought 4 of her paintings, since 2006 her quadrinomial painting MENSCHEN decorates the staircase of an important German social institution, the Arbeiterwohlfahrt Düsseldorf.
