Karin Kneffel: Hyperreal Paintings
German artist Karin Kneffel creates startlingly realistic oil paintings. Her current exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in New York includes a series of rain-streaked paintings containing a water drop motif, showing glass windows covered in condensation. The work features the interior space of German architect Miles van der Rohe, with objects inside blurred and distorted by dripping panes of wet glass.
Kneffel’s deceptively real imagery and sophisticated play on reflection evokes the slick aesthetic of our Hyper-Real Autumn/Winter 2013-14 colour concept. Look out for an update of the concept, coming soon.
The show is on view until October 20 2012.
