Kathrin grew up in East Germany. The first art she saw was social realist propaganda. In her latest exhibition at the Catherine Asquith gallery in Melbourne she takes a nostalgic look back from her new homeland of Australia to deal with the paradox of a generation of liberated eastern bloc women.
With a mixture of satire, romance and sensuality she engages the viewer in a surrealistic, heart stopping journey.
It is heartening to see a young painter powerfully expressing her own original vision with this collection of very well-crafted works.
The exhibition, you should not miss, runs from the 3rd to the 21st July 2012 at 48 Oxford Street Collingwood.
