Anne Neukamp, a Franco-German artist born
in Düsseldorf, is a graduate of the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts, and now works
and lives in Berlin. Her practice is essentially pictorial. Beginning nearly 15
years ago, it uses a graphic language borrowed from logos and other visual
elements gleaned from the Internet, the original design of which she buries
under stratification that is both pictorial and semantic. This process of
abstraction, strictly speaking – from the source image, even stylised – shifts
the design, through multiple manipulations, rotations, colourisations, and so
on, to a non-representational shape.
Anne Neukamp was in residence at the ISCP in New York (2015), and her work was
notably displayed at the Prague (2011) and Lyon (2015) Biennales, the KW in
Berlin, and the Kunstverein in Oldenburg in 2013.
