From Wednesday, February 17th to March 27th, 2016, the  London-based gallery The Approach will be presenting a solo exhibition entitled "lightyears," new works combining painting and sculptural constructions by Belgian artist Cris Brodahl. 

Continuing to develop her interest in configurations of fractured beauty that carry undertones of violence and sexuality, the subconscious, love, death and the uncanny, Brodahl presents a series of vibrantly coloured portraits of anonymous female subjects, inspired by commercial photography from a bygone era.

The surfaces of these skillfully rendered paintings become three-dimensional in appearance through the use of trompe-l’oeil, emulating the collaged layering in which the paintings’ origins lie.

In 1936, a 23-year-old Swiss artist named Meret Oppenheim bought a teacup, saucer and spoon from a department store in Paris and wrapped them in the cream-and-tan pelt of a Chinese gazelle.
