Hailing from Germany, Katharina Fritsch creates stunning, surreal sculpture art dipped in matte-paint for a 2D effect.

Fritsch transforms every day objects into visually arresting works of art – though the process is not an easy one. According to her bio from the Matthew Marks Gallery website, "her sculptures are the result of a time-consuming process: a piece is usually molded by hand, then cast in plaster, reworked, and then cast again in polyester."

Fritsche’s fantastic, bizarre sculptures – which include a circle of matte-black poodles surrounding a baby and a column of Saint Mary icon statues in matte yellow – have been features at esteemed institutions such as the MoMA, Sculpture Garden and the Tate.
