Braunig's illusory and vibrant works defy simplistic classification. At once vividly real and lusciously dreamlike, they blur the line between figure and abstraction.1 Rendered as neon, paper or other artificial materials, subjects are given at once human and mechanistic qualities.
Sascha Braunig was born in Qualicum Beach, Canada in 1983 and currently lives and works in Portland, Maine, USA.
Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Atlanta Contemporary, Atlanta; MoMA PS1, New York; Foxy Production, New York and Kunsthall Stavanger, Stavanger.
