  • Catalogue Essay

    The German artist Martin Eder makes large, splashy, semi-surrealistic paintings bringing together images of scantily clad women from pornographic magazines and much enlarged kittens; sometimes the women have grotesquely misplaced limbs. Painting in a slick, expressionistic manner that is a kind of stylistic equivalent of his kitschy, creepy imagery, his works are visual explorations His paintings have gained an international reputation for his paintings and watercolors of naked women taken from the pages of soft porn magazines, while concurrently he paints Hallmark card sweet portraits of dogs and cats. There is a clear tendency toward using kitsch as subject matter and yet his painterly proficiency keeps his work in high demand among collectors and curators.
