Katharina Arndt

Artist Artwork

"Every day we wipe over the shiny screen of our smartphones countless times, the bodies are hairless, the edges are round, the sunglasses are mirrored. The smooth texture appears as a metaphor for nonresistance, eternal youth, as artificial, uncritical, superficial, conformist."

- Katharina Arndt

Katharina Arndt is a contemporary artist from Germany working in the media of painting, drawing and light installation. Her fast and colorful paintings ironize the contemporary mass consumption aesthetic of a decadent affluent society by depicting their everyday life in the digital age.

Emblematic of this is the theme of 'surface' - social, cultural, material. In the hyperreal and at the same time immaterial online world, the visual appearance alone dominates - of ourselves and the products we are supposed to buy.  In her word artworks in neon letters, figurative drawings and paintings, she visualizes the aesthetics of mass consumption in the digital age and recontextualizes her surroundings and environment through her observation of digital communication behavior.
