Katharina Fritsch is a contemporary German sculptor. Born on February 14, 1956, she graduated from the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in 1984. Her work mixes reality with imagination. To create a surreal imagery that contracts reality and fantasy through its monochrome sculptures. Large-scale animals. People and objects. From her luminous palette, she noticed that the color “equalizes, makes abstract – like a visual sign, an icon. It is important: my work is always at the border between a detailed sculpture and a sign. Fritsch’s work is often described as disturbing. Containing slight changes in representation that alter the viewer’s perception. From reality and highlight the falsified imitation of the life of the work.
