Rebekka Steiger

b. 1993, Switzerland

Rebekka Steiger (1993, lives in Zurich, works in Lucerne) expresses herself freely and in a virtuoso manner in the medium of painting. In her work, which is characterised by the process of putting layer upon layer of paint onto the canvas and inviting serendipity, she confronts the unknown and the unexpected. Steiger creates images of a tremendous ambivalence and intensity, due to their intense colours and deriving from the artist's deep interest in emotionality and the atmospheric O.T. (2017, oil and tempera on canvas, 240 cm x 200 cm).
