Hi, as promised here is the second part of the dual artist exhibition "Connected" @ Brick 5, which brought together Juno's body sculptures with the surreal paintings of Jolanda Richter.
Born in the Netherlands, Jolanda Richter moved to Austria at the age of six and graduated from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.
Jolanda Richter's award-winning paintings depict mostly women looking like dancers in a levitating and moving state. They gently interact with their surreal environment and by the use of symbols, each painting conveys a basic concept such as freedom, security and confinement.
