Sascha Braunig’s paintings and drawings combine vibrant color and a hypnotic style to create compositions that reflect upon illusion and the surface of the represented subject. Through a controlled painting process, she turns portraits or still lifes into graphic schemes, applying a “skin” of irregular pattern—herringbone, fluid grids, or polka dots—in contrasting or complementary colors.
