Overview

Born in 1963, Swiss painter Caro Niederer is one of the most exciting painters of her generation. She first gained attention with her small, vividly colored, figurative oil paintings executed from personal snapshots. Since 1984, she has produced a series of photographs of interiors documenting the context in which her works were hung by their purchasers. In 1997, Niederer turned to larger formats, largely eliminating color from her paintings, and creating works in deep tones of sepia. Her recent series of works shown here features soft-focus color photos of idyllic holiday settings--from seashore and mountain scenes, to exotic pagodas.
