“vorübergehend sind wir hier”
Watercolor and ink on paper with digital overwork
Mirka Walter is an emerging visual artist and illustrator from Cologne, Germany. What especially has been influencing Mirka’s work and worldview is the feminist surrealism by artists such as Leonora Carrington. What Mirka wants to capture is the beauty, banality and brutality of the everyday, the human body in motion as well as a surreal and fantastic representation of the natural world. The artist’s favorite materials are watercolor in all its expressions and ink. The work (“vorübergehend sind wir hier”) depicts a performance of Katja Ferger and Regina van Berkel at the Werkbund Hessen in Frankfurt, Germany.
