Detailed description

Picture "Old doll with lace dress" (2022)

This old doll is an astonishing hermaphrodite. Located somewhere between a human being and a thing, its physiognomy data rather resemble stereotypical image formulas. And yet this artifact seems to be animated in a magical way, for old dolls are also vanitas symbols and metaphors for transience. From their doll faces, an alien childhood looks over to us. These collectibles take us back to a distant time when the hermaphrodites were loved, admired and bullied - as little siblings or companions of our mothers and grandmothers. The collage's pictorial structure deliberately dispenses with a central perspective. Spatiality is created through overlapping.

About Mo Fontaine

The Folkwang graduate is a representative of a New Classic Style.
For her, everything revolves around color and its manifold modes of expression: from subtle to expressive. In her still lifes, portraits and collages she combines elements from all worlds and times, because she loves the art of the old masters as much as the Japanese art of the 17th century. This is how 'decelerated', magical-sensual images are created, which also transport the discredited concept of beauty. Seen in this light, some of the paintings seem to have 'fallen out of time' - not least because the paintings quite consciously refuse a fundamental category of the avant-gardes: the 'art of artlessness'. The aim is a timeless art that will perhaps still function in two or three hundred years.
