Philipp Lachenmann: DELPHI Rationale


Justine Otto

Art Award 2005 Nominee

In her work, Justine Otto deals with the emotional worlds of children and adolescents. Characterized by bright colors, her paintings make the turmoil and turbulence of their feelings very immediate to the viewer. She thus provides an almost shamelessly intimate insight into the experiental world of children and adolescents. Her inscrutable depictions are posited against a behavior geared towards superficial representation, which is increasingly prevalent in today's information society.
