Marita Tobner


Marita Tobner was born on 20 August 1961 in Ulm (Germany). Since 1985, she has regularly attended art classes and participated in many workshops around the topics of painting and graphical art with well-known artists. Among her teachers are Clemens Erz, Wladimir Safronow, Elke Traue, Georg Fenkl, Angelika Hentschel, Albert Kippers and Stephan Geisler. Marita Tobner lives and works as freelance artist in Ulm. In 2019 she won the Gildepreis of the Künstlergilde (artist association) Ulm. Marita Tobner gives expression to her love for life in her art works. Usually she works in series and explores different mixed media techniques by using acrylics, oil, woodcuts or linocuts, collages, painting and drawing. Her multilayered compositions can be read as an analogy to the many layers of life, the plurality of her own experiences, of personal issues and social matters. Her images speak of subjective, inward visions but also try to change perspectives and look outward onto life and living as a whole. Both views are interwoven and composed as if they were in a dialogue with each other. The artist loves strong powerful colours and a combination of different styles in order to catch the attention of her viewers.  These tensions of portraying contents also create intensity. Her pictures never get boring, for all the time one can discover new things. This certainly is one of the reasons why her paintings have gained much in popularity over the past years. Marita Tobner´s works were shown in numerous exhibitions. LDXArtodrome Gallery has represented her internationally since 2018.
