Marianna Gartner

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and trained in Calgary, Gartner has lived and worked in Budapest and Berlin. Her paintings, often inspired by subjects in old photographs but manipulated to "create scenes which can challenge a contemporary viewer" have been variously described as "disquiet" and having a "haunting quality." She was chosen as the only Canadian artist profiled in Reading Pictures by Alberto Manguel, a book which considers her work alongside that of Picasso and Caravaggio. She has exhibited and been collected mainly in Berlin, Paris, New York, Vienna, Budapest and Zurich. Gartner is now living in Canada.
