AUREL SCHMIDT – SUPERNATURAL
34 inches wide x 72 inches tall
Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to acquire a work by American artist Aurel Schmidt. This large-scale, door-sized poster of a work entitled ‘Supernatural’ was completed in 2006 and acquired by the Dakis Joannou Collection.
Kathy Grayson, Director at Deitch Projects writes: “Supernatural greeted me when I arrived to do my first studio visit with Aurel and might still remain for me her greatest accomplishment. The piece was a life-size bizarro-world portrait of the artist as a young woman; as shy and unassuming as Aurel first seemed, her drawn alter-ego betrayed the fierce and wild woman that I would come to know later. That is not to say her boobs are composed of snakes and maggots, but rather that her spirit is in touch with elements of the natural and the all-too-human in a way far more sophisticated than her twenty-five years should allow.”
