Cornelia Renz

In her large-format reverse-glass drawings constructed in a collage-like way and in her gestic graphite works, Cornelia Renz sets echo-sounding signals with which she explores the depths of the social conventions of the gender mainstream. She translates her chromatic worlds of images pieced together with visual citations and the topics of heavyweights in the history of art into her own pictorial language, which is both aesthetic and brittle.
For her works, she borrows female clichés of fixed heteronormative notions, such as the femme fatale or the femme fragile, as well as animal-like composite beings from the worlds of symbols and myths.
