The works of the artist Nina Lamiel Bruchhaus deal with the question of spirituality in contemporary art. Do we find ourselves confronted with a loss of meaning through the constant repetition of gestures and the restriction to color and form without assigning them to a deeper meaning? How could a postmodern spiritual art look like without repeating itself? Can bridges be built between different cultures and religions without the risk of cultural appropriation? From the perspective of globalization she asks herself: where does the foreign begin? How do cultures differ while actually meaning the same thing? Is there a universality inherent in all rituals, myths and religions? How could this look like in the present time? What role does nature play as protagonist in this context? The artist, who has also studied religious studies and has travelled and researched mythology and religious practice outside her cultural circle, works in the media of painting, drawing and ceramics. She chooses these materials because they correspond to her idea of sensuality and naturalness in art. She wants to oppose digitalization, as she is confronted with a one-sided development towards the impoverishment of sensuality by the screen. Bruchhaus focuses on the multi-sensory abilities of our body. She rejects the constructed duality of body and mind (and soul), which she sees as a construct of western modernity. Texts from the philosophy of nature, such as Aristotle's "De Anima" or works of phenomenology by Maurice Merleau Ponty as well as the sociologist Georg Simmel support Bruchhaus' theory, according to which man can be defined without this separation. In her works, the boundaries between humans and nature are consciously dissolved. A seemingly childlike mode of representation is combined with modes of representation from Japanese ink painting. The feeling of security in nature and nature as a symbol of liveliness is expressed. The artist has given herself the middle name "Lamiel", inspired by the novel by the author Stendhal, which bears this name as its title. The novel is about the young woman Lamiel, who, although coming from a family with little education, succeeds in gaining access to other resources. The novel is the first novel in western literary history and certainly still a rare example of a male author writing from a woman's point of view. Bruchhaus would like to draw attention to this and is reflected in the content of the novel.
