Karin Hoogesteger - Animalia et Hominem 006

Her paintings talk and make us think about dreaming girls in this foggy wonderland. Fragile and sweet and innocent. To inspire her a photos of magazines but also family albums and fairytales. “I choose girls to renew the sense of responsability in who looks at them”.

Karin Hoogesteger, Dutch, class of 19783, is now a young star of European art. Her most recent works (many made on rice paper) were at the Negenpuntnegen Gallery in Roselare, Belgium. The web site of the gallery is a futuristic Matrix style wiz op wonder:

Rushing along the highway
to my little paradise
time is slipping away
between laundry and bedtime lullabies
but not here
God no, not here
fool’s paradise
fool’s paradise
