Berlin-based artist Monika Baer (born 1964) approaches the picture as "a site of staging or performance.” Figurative elements such as keyholes, coins and slices of meat act as agents within the staged space of the image, while defying organization as a coherent narrative. Baer’s paintings and drawings evoke desires and afflictions and convey the visceral pleasure and pain of their own making.
This volume, accompanying the first US museum exhibition of the artist’s paintings and drawings, includes works created between 1990 and 2013.

This volume includes two bodies of work by German painter Monika Baer (born 1964): her paintings of playing cards, dollar bills and stylized breasts floating against an abstract wash, and more recent works in which web-like patterns are cut out of the canvas, exposing the stretcher behind.

Since the early 1990s, Monica Baer has been developing a mysterious, surreal world in paintings, drawings and collages. Her fantastic, stimulating work draws on the styles of earlier epochs, and begins the creation of a new romantic era of subjectivity, sensibility and visual opulence. Works on Paper includes both her watercolors and her oils.
