Fly me to Berlin! My favorite painter, Miss Van, along with Victor Castillo, have a new show at Merry Karnowsky Berlin. The show opened this weekend, and you can see the exhibition online, here.
Miss Van's work has evolved so much in the past years, and these paintings reveal a darker, more ominous side to her girls. I really love the pieces with the blood and the flowing blonde hair. She has a few installation pieces in the show as well, and from what I can tell, there are three new limited edition giclées available.
Her work is always surprising me, taking new turns that I didn't expect from past shows. Hair has become a central focus in her work, at times winding it's way around the girls as if it's restraining them. There's always such a sense of delicate femininity in her work- yet the girls never seem weak or timid. I've loved her work from the beginning, and I am eager to see how it continues to evolve.
