Katarina Meister is interested in the gesture of painting and finding out what this kind of artistic interrogation does to the concept of the art work / how it can be used as the core part of the work itself. Painting is a way she engages with the world. Painting ready-made / found images allows her to play more with the selection methods of images and to find out more about the meaning of painting as a layer.
