KARLA MARIE BENTZEN: Dirty Fingers Opening

Saturday, April 30, 2011

The opening on the15th April there was a great display of affection towards the illustrative based work of Karla Marie Bentzen, of which ended in an amazing night. As Karla Marie Bentzen’s first solo exhibition went very well, and I hope to see more of her work. The exhibition runs from April 15 until May 14 2011, at the Berlin Unlike Gallery.

Bentzen’s highly illustrative work, previously displayed both as street art and on paper, relies largely on her subconscious, a place seemingly consumed with magic and spirituality. Through her artistic process is thoroughly controlled there is also paradoxically a meditative element to producing the intricate geometrical patterns which are a charismatic aspect of her work. Through using a predominately monochromatic palette, with glimpses of carefully selected bright colours, Bentzen’s illustrations explore sex, death and power, examining what lies beneath the surface in a dark yet honest and humorous tone. When ‘her girls’ are frustrated about their situations, they are not ashamed of showing it.
