From the Back Cover:

Eerste overzichtswerk van de Belgische kunstenares Karin Hanssen De schilderijen van Karin Hanssen lijken onschuldig, maar onder de oppervlakte gaat een dwingende dreiging schuil. Haar werk is veelgelaagd en veelzijdig en bevat talrijke verwijzingen naar de kunstgeschiedenis. Naast het onderzoek naar de relatie van de schilderkunst met het fotografische beeld, werkt ze met thema's als de 'Rückenfigur',Tijd en de flashback,feminisme, landschap en portret. Haar werk behoort onder meer tot de collecties van het S.M.A.K. in Gent, de Nationale Bank van België, de White Cube Modern Collection en UBS Collection in Londen. Ze toonde haar werk in Europa, Amerika, Azië en Australazië en nam deel aan de triënnale van Yokohama in Japan en de biënnale van Sharjah in de VAE. Ook in België maakte haar werk deel uit van o.a. de bejubelde tentoonstellingen als Fading in het museum van Elsene, Uit het geheugen in het Museum Dr. Guislain en recent nog Re:Painted in het S.M.A.K. in Gent. Dit boek presenteert een overzicht van haar schilderijen en tekeningen van de laatste 25 jaar. Alle werken getuigen van het immense talent van deze kunstenaar. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Karin Hanssen lives and works in Antwerp. She was born in 1960 in the city, where she studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and graduated from the Higher Institute of Fine Arts in 1993. Hanssen's paintings and drawings are replete with meticulously constructed layers of philosophical and pictorial meanings, and reward prolonged looking. She incessantly explores the concepts of temporal disorientation, social semiotics, feminism, the 'Rückenfigur' and 'The Borrowed Gaze'. As a child in an orphanage, Hanssen discovered the power of painting and its relationship to fantasy and reality, which allowed her to create her own world.   This book is a comprehensive survey of her paintings and drawings for the past quarter of a century. Hanssen’s work is collected by institutions and private individuals. She has participated in many international biennials and exhibitions. Karin Hanssen’s work is exclusively represented by Roberto Polo Gallery, Brussels. _________________________________________________________________________________ Ontdek de expo 'A room of one's own' in de Roberto Polo Gallery 12 september tot 16 november 2014 | Brussel Roberto Polo Gallery heeft de eer om een dertigtal recente schilderijen van Karin Hanssen te presenteren.
