About the work
Inka Essenhigh
American, b. 1969
Follow

Inka Essenhigh's fluid, dreamlike imagery—often the result of automatic drawing and free association—references graphic novels and the golden age of animation. Part of a group of contemporary figurative painters in New York (including John Currin, Will Cotton, and Lisa Yuskavage), she is also associated with Pop Surrealism. Recent large-scale landscape paintings of weather and passing seasons share the high-gloss surfaces and accentuated colors of her figures. While earlier, enamel works focused on line and flatness, her move to oil paint in 2001 has resulted in a sculptural, almost three-dimensional style.
