Rainen Knecht

The figures in Rainen Knecht’s paintings question the line between alien and real, human and animal, self and other. The artist employs a form of dream logic to examine beauty, humor and horror in works that are simultaneously sexy, angry, ugly and funny. Knecht’s hybrid, feminine figures—situated between warrior princess and sturdy milkmaid—playfully enact feminist revenge fantasies as they lounge, bend or contort into suggestive puzzles.
