Simone Haack. Hinterland.

The new paintings by Berlin artist Simone Haack open up paradoxical worlds. The soft painted portraits and the idyllic landscapes seem to derive from the field of classical beauty and harmony, but at a second glance the viewer recognizes the subtleness, the mistery and disconcertment in this strange pictorial world.
