SASKIA TANNEMAAT

One may be reminded of the crisis years before WWII in which German expressionism arose when seeing Tannemaat’s portraits. The movement was, so angrily and radically, a cry for a better, actively social world while appropriating an entirely new, crude aesthetic. Saskia Tannemaat is inspired by the movement and the period, often highlighting its dark similarities with our current society. Consequently, Forgiven! conveys the artist’s personal process to place public issues today.
