Marcela Böhm. What Never Changes.

“That we togehter with the painter are left between dream and nightmare establishes the quality of her painting. The familiar becomes alien and treacherous, the everyday turns unfamiliar and threatening. …Read this way, Marcela Böhm’s painting is in its beauty as well as its abrupt, occasionally brutal disruption a continuous battle for security, for pictures […]

Simone Haack. Hinterland. (2017)
