Nikola Irmer

Above one of Nikola Irmer's paintings in Apartment along with a selection of five paintings in the bedroom. The show consists of a series of paintings that depict Horst's transformation into a drag persona. Also included in the show is a collage that reveals a creative dialogue between artist and model; Horst uses sketches and images of the work created during their sessions to create new imagery that celebrates the relationship that the artist and model have developed over a the years. Postcards and collages sent to Irmer by Horst extend the creative process beyond the studio, Irmer's willingness to include these images in this exhibition reveal the value she places on her subjects as model and in this case as collaborator.
