I saw this brilliant painter’s work on a visit to an art academy in Berlin. In a slightly out of focus range of blues, blacks, greys, and scarce brights, her work is akin to a child’s nightmare viewed peripherally. Each painting has a narrative and distinct characters, some of which I’d like to get to know, most of which I’d avoid at all costs. Merry-go-rounds, tribal gatherings, and covert rape scenes abound. She simultaneously inspires and terrifies.
