Charline von Heyl, one of today’s most inventive painters, has received international acclaim for her cerebral, yet deeply visceral artworks that upend conventional assumptions about composition, beauty, narrative, design, and artistic subjectivity.
Combining keen humour, a rigorous, process-based practice, and references to a broad array of sources including literature, pop culture, metaphysics and personal histories, von Heyl creates paintings that are neither figurative nor abstract, but instead present in her words, ‘a new image that stands for itself as fact.’
This luxurious, concertina format, double-volume catalogue has been designed in close collaboration with the artist.
