Uta Reinhardt


Compellingly composed and richly colorful, the works of Munich-based painter Uta Reinhardt evoke a sense of unrest. Her presentation of human or animal figures in strange positions or unusual situations leave viewers to wonder what could possibly be taking place on the brightly covered canvases. At the heart of the paintings collected here is the isolated or distant position of the subject—sometimes only partially formed—whose  gaze suggests intrigue or an undisclosed secret that will remain forever within the world of the work.
            With eighty lush full-color reproductions of Reinhardt’s paintings and an insightful critical essay by Peter Kohlhaas, Uta Reinhardt: Painting celebrates this prolific and widely admired contemporary artist and introduces new audiences to her intensely expressive and captivating vision.
