I first discovered the work of Svenja Deininger at Marianne Boesky Gallery when I was in New York last fall. And have since become pretty much entirely enamored of it. Her use of shape and color, her mix of flat and textured areas, her technical virtuosity (for instance, you might think that gold stripe in the painting just below is metallic paint reflecting the light--but nope! it's just regular old paint, mixed and shaded and gradiented to look like a shiny reflective surface) all just fit perfectly into the art receptors inside my brain. Enjoy!
