(Cologne, 1958) is based in New York). Jutta Koether
works in the field of painting, performance, music and art criticism. Within the field of painting she is equally ‘multipurpose’ with her use of translucent colour fields, the gestural brushstroke, foreboding black landscapes, use of the female form and the appropriation of poetry, song lyrics and visual imagery from both the paintings history and pop culture. Her work flips between an exuberant visual experience and a witty, rigorous critique of aesthetics.
