Astrid Styma private
26.02.22–26.03.22
SETAREH X is pleased to present private, the second solo exhibition by Astrid Styma. The characteristic signature style of Astrid Styma‘s painting, a representation of bodies that is in part digitally reminiscent, has defined her oeuvre since 2012 and has inspired in many aspects since then.

The works of the artist from Düsseldorf, painted on canvas and wood, depict close-ups of bodies whose gestures and palette convey mental states and moods. The depiction of mostly naked female bodies - whereby the artist mostly draws on her own body - repeatedly assume a posture facing away from the viewer.

Facial features are not depicted or are only indicated, instead, the sensory organs are presented in a unique manner at this exhibition. When it comes to interpersonal encounters, it is primarily our senses that are in the focus. Depending on the situation and its atmosphere, people react very differently and employ certain senses to a greater or lesser extent.

Astrid Styma (b. 1988) creates highly realistic still lives, portraits and sculptural interventions that span references between painting techniques of renaissance Neo-Realism, Surrealism and Post-Digital works of the 21st Century. Figures which are often isolated from any detailed references are arranged in front of gently illuminated backgrounds that remind of contemporary and digital surfaces in pastel-shaded tones. Through the repeated depiction of the same motifs, the works read as metaphors for complex interpersonal constellations. And with subtle references to architectural impossibilities, Styma invites us into trustworthy worlds of images that reveal paradoxes and open up possible trapdoors of perception.
