Jana Schröder

Her artwork-creating apply seeks to issue the validity of common portray gestures. It evoques the do the job of Cy Twombly and it concerns the principle of what is art?

In some paintings, she utilizes the indelible pencil, with its absurd chemical mother nature (it irrevocably fades when exposed to daylight), serves as the best platform for expressing gestures freely and as a finalizing act.
