Kyra Nijskens’ vivid works wavers between a devotion for painterly processes and a conceptual analysis of painting. Investigating the interplay between traditional techniques and the uncontrolled image-making-machine of our era; the digital, she started to reconsider the painting as a transparent screen. By layering individual sheets of film acetate – allowing for infinite new combinations – she researches the changeability and temporality of an image, while destabilizing the paintings permanence and stability.

In a dazzling mixture of techniques, seductive colors, appropriated imagery and stereo-typically feminine coded elements, Nijskens gracefully battles old age systems, integrating and subverting modernist vocabulary to persistently evoke a live energy into her works, celebrating the playing nature of mankind.
