A colorful, dangerous world
In my optical wanderings (not as unhealthy as it might sound) I've found a lot to like about Simone Haack, a German painter, and a fairly young one.
She's good at faces and figures.This is highly expressive, fever dream stuff. She might bear a heavy heritage from the Dutch Baroque artists. Frans Hals seems like he could recognize her as one of his own.
The color work in this collections bears a starkness that could almost be black and white. If that makes any sense.
