SASCHA BRAUNIG

Sascha Braunig’s paintings and drawings combine vibrant color and an hypnotic style. Her works reflect upon illusion and the surface of the represented subject. In dream-like scenes, where repetition and patterning are foregrounded, Braunig’s figures emit an extrasensory glow. Flaring with reflected color, they are iridescent beings whose very skin seems to be a source of psychic power. Foreground, background, and figure often merge, as if the subject is expanding into, yet also constrained by, the frame of the painting.

Sascha Braunig (Qualicum Beach, BC, Canada, 1983) currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She holds a BFA from The Cooper Union, New York, and an MFA in painting from Yale University.
