A painting style characterised by playful lightness typifies Marianna Krueger's work. On the canvas, she takes an unsparing approach to many aspects of our contemporary culture, particularly those cliches related to the portrayal of women. Societal expectations of beauty and attractiveness are recurrent themes in Krueger's images. With a keen eye for design and a highly developed artistic sensibility, she grants the viewer both conceptual and intuitive access to her visual worlds. Looking back over more than two decades of work, it is evident that Marianna Krueger delights in satirising the illusionary commonplaces with which we are all daily presented.
