Penumbra presents paintings and drawings by Sara van der Heide (Busan, South Korea, 1977). This colourful, layered work shows images from the ‘between world’ of dream and reality: appearances, visions, chimeras, but also contemporary images of, for example, individuals, processions and modern-day icons.
With their impressive visual power, these paintings and drawings evoke associations with images from the subconscious, with distant memories and with the work of other artists.
