Felicitas Aga is a painter whose work engages critically with the history of stillife painting.

She riffs on the traditional genres of portraiture and stillife, using abstraction and a graphic boldness, as well as a darker, gothic element. Her paintings are in turn abstract, geometric, fantastic and eerily animistic.

(Hanns Peter Kreuser, curator KKV Hansa, Munich)
