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)
Felicitas Aga recieved her MA in Fine Art Painting from Chelsea School of Art and Design,London in 1996. Previous to this she studied with Per Kirkeby at Staedelschule in Frankfurt, with Bruce McLean at the Slade in London and at Vestlandets Kunstakademi in Bergen, Norway. She holds the title Meisterschuelerin of Per Kirkeby.
