In her exhibit at Bismarck Studios she will show her newest work coming out of her "Koepfe" series. Inge is creating portraits from memory of people she has met on her numerous travels.

She is trying to tell their storries through her portraits.
„Seit jeher interessiert mich der Mensch in seinen existenziellen Befindlichkeiten. So begann ich vor ca. 10 Jahren "Köpfe" zu malen und zu zeichnen. In den gemalten Gesichtern, versuche ich eine Geschichte zu erzählen. Die Geschichte dieser Menschen”. Inge H. Schmidt
