Inka Essenhigh is an especially versatile painter. Her earlier work is characterized by glossy enameled surfaces depicting graphic narratives, which evolved from an automatic drawing process. Inka's more recent paintings illustrate surreal environments reflecting distorted scenes of everyday life and pop-culture. She is adept at communicating drama and movement through a combination of exaggerated gestures, broad simplistic brush strokes, and highly detailed areas.
Living and working in New York, Inka is currently represented by Gallery 303 in Chelsea and the Victoria Miro Gallery in London. Her work is also exhibited in renowned public collections, such as the Albright Knox Art Gallery, PS1 Contemporary Art Center, The Whitney Museum, The Tate Gallery, and the Saatchi Gallery. Inka received her BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio and her MFA from the School of Visual Arts. For more information go to www.inka-essenhigh.com/biography.php.
