Katja Seib (b. 1989, Düsseldorf, Germany) graduated from Düsseldorf Kunstakademie with an MFA in painting in early 2016. Working figuratively, Seib paints directly onto canvases of raw hessian fabric using photographs on her phone. Through a combination of technologically-mediated imagery, a fascination with surface pattern and texture, and a self-conscious glance back to the histories of her medium, Seib creates works that are simultaneously familiar and strange, combining a subtle interplay of texture and image with deft brushwork and a meticulous attention to detail.
