German artist Cornelia Schleime’s (born 1953) most frequent subject is the female form, merging or coexisting with the kinds of animals one might expect to find in the European countryside--rabbits, deer, turtles and fish. Infused with a subtle eroticism, her paintings, drawings and watercolors exert a fascination that is amply conveyed in this monograph.
A natural painterly heir to the Metamorphoses of Ovid, German artist Cornelia Schleime (born 1953) delights in transmuting the human form. This publication features her Camouflage series, in which humans and animals coalesce to form zoomorphic hybrid figures.
