Foxy Production presents Sascha Braunig's new paintings in her debut New York solo exhibition. Braunig combines vibrant color and an hypnotic style in works that reflect upon illusion and the surface of the image. In dream-like scenes where repetition and patterning are foregrounded, Braunig's female subjects emit an extrasensory glow. Flaring with reflected color, they are iridescent beings whose very skin seems to be a source of psychic power.
SASCHA BRAUNIG (Nanaimo, BC, Canada, 1983) currently lives and works in Portland, ME. She holds a BFA from The Cooper Union and an MFA in painting from Yale University.
