CULTURE MIX SERIES – OIL PAINTINGS

The German-Italian artist works intensively with masks and costumes from different cultures. Her research produced countless overlaps of otherwise disconnected elements of traditional clothing.

This led to the creation of a series that joins different world cultures in one human being. The exotic, the unfamiliar and the familiar are merged to evoke affinity and dialogue. Along the lines of „all equal“ – a relevant political and at the same time emotional topic.

It is important that the subject does not represent a flattened image or a parody of cultures but that it has a mystical and detached quality to induce the feeling of unease that we experience when facing the unknown.

Tanja Hirschfeld’s elaborate technique of layered glazes creates powerful oil paintings of feminine figures that embody both, strength and sensuality. She transforms her heroines into majestic creatures through the boldness of their almost armour-like costumes.
