Nora Matotsi: “Faces-space-urban landscape.” Nora Matotsa was born in Bavaria, she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg with specialty of painting and sculpture, and also studied the history of arts at the University of Erlangen.

In her works the artist is mainly interested in man and his impact on the surrounding world. The nature, which Nora Matotsa loves truly, gives her artistic interest only if impact of human hand is visible.

The absence of roots indicates an increasing removal of the inhabitants of the land from their earthly roots in the realization of the eternal law "Reach external passivity, firmly stick to the foundations of calmness! Thousands of things form their shape and aim the action, and I watch as they once again return to the calm state (Lao-Tzu)."
