Biography

Christof Mascher’s dream-like paintings conjure fantastical narratives that combine expressionistic marks with illustrative details, contemporary iconography, and foreboding architectural spaces. Influenced by “primitive” and “naïve” art, the fantastical hybrids of Paul Klee and Hieronymus Bosch, and Emil Nolde’s expressive use of color, Mascher paints scenes that are eerily sparse, ambiguous spaces, with fantastical flora and fauna, incomprehensible shadows, and ethereal structures.
