About the Work

Clinical chillness and a drastic, depersonalised cropping imbue the work Sonde with a strange, oppressive atmosphere. Maina-Miriam Munsky directed her painterly focus towards the thematic fields of operation, pregnancy, birth and death. In her works, early feminist concerns are treated soberly, fill the entire picture and thereby seem almost aggressive. In contrast to the gestural Informalism of the 1950s, her smooth, almost hyperrealistic painting moves between New Realism and the tradition of Neue Sachlichkeit ( New Objectivity) from the 1920s.
