Maja Vukoje

March 3 – April 23, 2006

Maja Vukoje’s approach to painting is based on a double strategy: with a figurative predisposition, and always using existing media material, she creates pictures of landscape scenarios and mask-like figures. These motifs are overlaid with a sphere of the uncanny and of a physical presence in the process of decomposing, pointing to Vukoje’s interest in a new type of representational painting. A selection of her large-format paintings and her drawings of the last two years will be shown in the Galerie space at the Secession.


Maja Vukoje, born in Dusseldorf in 1969, lives and works in Vienna.
