Lotte Gertz

Gertz’s practice encompasses painting, printing, collage and drawing. Her images have their origins in items found close at hand within the artist’s immediate surroundings. She makes, in the words of art historian Susannah Thompson, “intimate and personal works which are less revealing than allusive. Perhaps that are anti-vanitas paintings, still lives which examine and contemplate the real and material aspects of life rather than cautioning against them”.
