DESCRIPTION

This is the first U.S. museum exhibition devoted to the work of Belgian painter Cris Brodahl. Brodahl makes beautifully crafted but mysterious works that are built up of jarring juxtapositions of imagery. Often religiously and erotically charged, but never for the sake of shocking her audience, her artwork continues in a vein of surrealism that was popularized by other Belgian artists such as Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux. The exhibition features around ten new paintings, installed in Brodahl’s distinctive style with special frames that also shape and manipulate the gallery space.
