Constanze Thielecke is a visual artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. She depicts individual and group portraits using a mixture of historical, fictional and mythical narratives.
She is interested in unconscious behaviors in interpersonal relationships which are informed through historical collective memories. In her explorations she is particularly interested in the influence of normative societal expectations on female bodies and identities.
In her figurative yet abstract style she combines illustrative and realistic elements and puts the figures in imaginary relations to each other, using symbolic elements to open up the often one-sided depiction of female figures in culture for diverse and subjective interpretations. Thereby her artwork is emphasizing the female gaze, bringing together power and female identity.
Constanze Thielecke studied Fine Art (Aberystwyth University, 2010) and Art in Context (University of the Arts, Berlin 2014) and has partaken in exhibitions in Germany and Europe. Her artwork is part of private collections in Germany and Great Britain. She is the founder of the art collective Wonderlust. (2010)
