Kerstin Brätsch’s practice has involved collaborations with other artists, astrologers, psychics and artisans working with traditional stained glass and paper marbling techniques. Her distinctive, highly saturated and abstract images resemble patterns found in nature – geodes or other stone formations, or the markings of plants and animals – and also read like ciphers, a kind of language. She works with processes that are like alchemical rituals, combining pigments and liquids with other materials in precise measures according to traditional, even ancient, methods and surrendering to the intelligence of materials and the way they behave

This edition, produced exclusively for Camden Art Centre, relates to a new series in which Brätsch tests the limits of a traditional technique - Stucco Marmo - using plaster and pigment to imitate marble and other rare stones. This series at times is expressed as an ‘image-corpus’, or body-image, and at others, takes the form of symbols, or a language, seemingly related to Internet vernacular and emojis.

'“I like to place painting in an extended field to draw out its relation towards the body (be it physical, psychic, psychological or social). I consider painting as an ever-becoming body, and my journey through different mediums is done to view painting from different angles.” - Kerstin Brätsch

Brätsch (b. 1979, Hamburg, Germany) lives and works in New York. She is primarily known as a painter, also making work collaboratively as DAS INSTITUT (with artist Adele Röder) and KAYA (with artist Debo Eilers). She currently lives and works in New York City. Brätsch often creates large-scale, highly abstract works that combine multiple medias. Her paintings have been hung by magnets, draped, framed in between sheets of glass and leaned against walls, to combine elements of exhibition display and performance in her artistic practice.

Recent solo exhibitions include: The Juwel Box, SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia, United States (as KAYA) (2020); Fossil Psychics for Christa, curated by Yasmil Raymond, The Museum of Modern Art, Terrace 6 Café, New York (2019); Aktive Asche_, Bärenzwinger Berlin, Germany, Johannes Paul Raether & Mariechen Danz feat.
