About the work
Medium
Drawing, Collage or other Work on Paper
Rosa Loy
German, b. 1958
Follow

Rosa Loy’s work comes out of a worldview influenced by her upbringing in Leipzig, in the former East Germany, cut off from the rest of postwar Germany by Communism and the Berlin Wall. Using casein, an ancient water-based paint derived from milk protein, Loy fills large canvases with mysterious and compelling all-female dream worlds. Brittle and thick, the casein imparts intensity to her paintings, which are both dark and lovely, abounding with references to fairytales, German and art history, Freudian eroticism, authoritarian rule, and death.
