Unlike Gallery is pleased to present Dirty Fingers, the first solo exhibition by Berlin based artist Karla Marie Bentzen.
Bentzen’s highly illustrative work, previously displayed both as street art and on paper, relies largely on her subconscious, a place seemingly consumed with magic and spirituality. Through using a predominately monochromatic palette, with glimpses of carefully selected bright colours, Bentzen’s illustrations explore sex, death and power, examining what lies beneath the surface in a dark yet honest and humorous tone.
For the exhibition at Unlike Gallery, Bentzen has produced a number of new drawings which will be displayed alongside a large, site-specific wall piece. Her geometric shapes will also leak onto the gallery windows, heightening the sensation of being part of Bentzen’s surreal world.
