About Virginia Wagner

Virginia Wagner makes paintings set in zones of conflict between human progress and the natural world. This tension plays out in the paint as rigid grids contrast swampy pools and violent spills. Raised in a family of biologists, she has a unique perspective from which to observe the psychological and physical effects of our quickly changing planet and uses narrative to expand and populate her visual worlds. Her interests in the figure and mythology has aligned her with Neo-Expressionist and New Leipzig School painters and led her to join the Agora Collective in Berlin.
