Jack Hanley Gallery is excited to present Emma Kohlmann’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. For the exhibition, Kohlmann presents a new series of works on paper and canvas.


“Whoever speaks with primordial images speaks in a thousand voices” - Carl C. Jung

Emma Kohlmann’s drawings and paintings retrace the subconsciousness through a symbolism drawn from erotica, ancient statues and figurines, or mythological narratives. Androgynous nudes touching each other or themselves, butterflies, plants and wondrous animals with human faces all coexist in Kohlmann’s dreamscapes that are fantastical and deeply spiritual.

The immediacy of the watercolors and sumi ink on paper with their fluid figures reflect the surreal spheres the viewer gets drawn into. Like automatic drawings the blobs and lines seem to channel the unconscious. Grouped by color and arranged in large grids, the drawings piece together the cache of symbols like a hieroglyphic script.
