About Cornelia Baltes
Cornelia Baltes was born in 1978 in Mönchengladbach (Germany). She currently lives and works in London (UK) and Berlin (Germany).
Cornelia Baltes challenges the notion of a painting as a discrete object, working beyond the rectangular frame of the canvas on a stretcher. Her imagery is rooted in observations of the everyday—clothing, facial expressions—reduced to a few simple, sloping lines that endow the works with a sense of humor. Baltes, who works between London and Cologne, has created murals, freestanding paintings on shaped canvases, paintings extending from canvases to walls, and paintings on casters that can be moved around floors. These mechanisms expand the ways in which the medium can operate as a narrative device and examine how the gallery functions as a stage for such objects.
Cornelia Baltes is represented by Galleri Nicolai Wallner.
