Monika Baer

Monika Baer’s painting sits directly within the traditional opposition between the figurative and the abstract. The interplay between painting materials, painting method and the canvas as a real object generates situations that are full of tension, illusional effects accentuating the spatial depth and the painting surface itself.

This volume includes her paintings of playing cards, dollar bills and stylised breasts floating against an abstract wash, and more recent works in which web-like patterns are cut out of the canvas, exposing the stretcher behind.
