About

Romy Julia Kroppe is a visual artist based in Leipzig. Her medium is painting on large scaled paper and experimenting on smaller formats including different types of collage, photo and print. Interested in the relationship between human and its surrounding she works in the fields Landscape, Interior and Still life. Instead of showing human figures she paint leftovers like remaining traces of man. The aim is to find a situational speciality in them as well as in their interaction with the environment.
