Quast is founded in 2017 by artists Sonja Weißmann and Christiane Fochtmann who have known each other since studying at the renowned Art Academy of Duesseldorf, Germany.
Sonja Weißmann is a figurative painter. With a preference for improvisation using a variety of painting techniques, she predominantly creates large scale landscapes and intimate portraits.
The special field of Christiane Fochtmann is space and its potential transformations: sculptural works, sound- and video installations provide the cornerstones of her creative practice.
Quast combines both approaches: painting is extended into spatial environments and conceived as elements of interior design.
