Full Description

Kathrin Landa (b. 1980) is a graduate of the prestigious Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig and devotes her art entirely to portrait painting. Her highly acclaimed works live from their expressive objectivity. This catalogue, with an introduction by Michael C. Maurer, showcases the broad spectrum of her work to date, from commissioned pieces to artistic analyses of people at their emotional limits. In his insightful observations, the author Christoph Kolk traces the poetry of her paintings. Stern journalist and couple’s therapist Nina Poelchau examines Landa’s double portraits and finds that they reveal existential patterns of human relationships. Lastly, writer, artist and curator Martin Oswald explains the creation of a portrait from the perspective of the sitter. This richly illustrated publication is more than just a monograph — it is also a work about the very essence of portraiture.

Text in English and German.
