ARTIST OF THE GALLERY
Cut, copy, paste, splendid new world! Fehmi Baumbach disassembles images and words. Cuttings from drawings, encyclopedias, paintings and photos are reassembled to form dreamlike states. Figures move into the centers of their new universes. Cosmonauts, renaissance beauties, saints & secretaries talk in monologues. They enter dialogues that are on the edge of reality. Sometimes they scream. A certain sound exerts from within these compositions as the artist always surrounds herself with music. Her images become catchy like a good song yet still have the ambiguity that draws you into these modern day images.
