The Zurich artist Andrea Muheim is known as a painter of intimate portraits and private spaces, of still lifes, and also of landscapes and cityscapes. Her fundamental and recurrent interest, however, is focused on the human body—whether as a portrait, a nude or, as recently, in motion. She uses the medium to conduct an ongoing inventory of her immediate day-to-day surroundings and to create atmospherically charged pictorial spaces. The relationship between color, form, structure, and light is thereby repeatedly and freshly explored. A particular characteristic of her painterly practice is the serial production of one and the same theme or subject as a concentrated investigation of issues involving visual aesthetics. Nearly 800 works have been assembled in chronological sequence into clear, concentrated tableaus; they turn this artist’s book into a veritable pictorial diary extending over the thirty years of Andrea Muheim’s creative production.
