Imbued with whimsy and gloom, vulnerability and strength, Katharina Wulff's figurative paintings blend myriad art historical styles, depicting imaginary, far-off locales often populated by strange animals and alluring visages. This latest installment of our New Work series — the artist's first solo exhibition in the United States as well as the first time her work has been shown on the West Coast — features a selection of paintings made over the last five years, along with several new works.
The New Work series is organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and is generously supported by Collectors Forum, the founding patron of the series. Major support is provided by Martha and Bruce Atwater, and Robin Wright and Ian Reeves.
