The paintings of Hamburg-based Polish artist Justine Otto (born 1974) break down the conventions of the history of painting alongside myths of masculinity. Heroes & Hoaxes documents her recent works, in which broken figures stand their ground, while their uniforms, horses and symbols of status are portrayed as precarious.

Polish artist Justine Otto (born 1974) depicts in oils a simultaneously seductive and disturbing world of girls and women. Her characters, wearing knowing expressions, engage in mysterious activities, operating machinery or lounging in interiors upon which the natural world of plants and animals seems to encroach.
