BORN 1960, Mainz, Germany
LIVES&WORKS New York, Marfa, USA

Literature, pop culture, metaphysics, and personal life are the primary sources of inspiration for the German painter, who is the protagonist – together with her abstract art – of important exhibitions worldwide. Her proposition is to “create images that had never been seen before” using a rigorous creative process that subverts the ageing rules of composition, beauty, narration. A unique, exuberant, heavy visual language.
