​From April 12 till May 5, 2019, this year’s Winsor & Newton Fellows Pia Krajewski and Irina Ojovan will be presenting new works in a joint exhibition at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, curated by Jurriaan Benschop.


Undulating hair, endlessly meandering arms, vases and pitchers as protagonists of an enticing puzzle. Monochrome surfaces, tightly covering the underlying layers, provide information about the past, much like a palimpsest. „What the artists share is an interest in taking images from the exterior world, isolating them, and transforming them into a reduced painterly vocabulary. To grasp the paintings in their full scope, the viewer has to move closer to and further from the canvases, collecting sensations of texture and touch from close by, or seeing the overall image from a more distant perspective.“
