> DESCRIPTION

WRISTER, BLISTER, PLASTER is Sascha Braunig's second solo exhibition at Foxy Production. Unraveling the figure in unexpected ways, her new series of oil and gouache portraits employ both Op art and baroque elements. The exhibition comprises highly patterned figures who appear interwoven with their environments, and hybrid beings whose bodies and their ornamentation seem indivisible.

Braunig's geometric figures have a visual fluidity, as if their delicate skins can barely contain their bodies. Subject and background merge, creating ambiguity and optical tension. An alliance is forced between flat patterned designs and observed, mimetic representation.

The artist's alien figures refract studio portraiture into hallucinatory scenes. Mixing angst, elegance, and humor, Braunig appropriates the techniques of historical portrait painting. The works' ruffles, masks, hairstyles, and make-up push adornment into a parallel universe of body morphing and new life forms.
