Birgit Megerle - Connection, 2018

Starting price 8.000 EUR

 Show bid increments

8.000 EUR

Birgit Megerle’s paintings, concerned with temporality and the the historicity of painting, are characterized by an artificial, stage-like, atmosphere. Despite their contemporary references, her works feel as though they have fallen out of time, devoid of an identifiable context. Her still life paintings of flowers, which can be seen as a homage to Georgia O’Keeffe, allude to the role of the flower as a metaphor for female sexuality.

Megerle’s work has recently been exhibited at institutions across the globe, including Le Bel Ordinaire, Billère, FR, 2019, Bielefelder Kunstverein, DE, 2017, Kunstverein Leipzig, DE, 2016, Kunsthaus Glarus, CH, 2016 and The Jewish Museum, NY, USA, 2015.

Oil on canvas 165 × 130 × 2.5 cm

Starting bid: € 8.000.– ( Low estimate: € 16.000 - High estimate: € 24.000 )
