Stefanie Gutheil's painting questions social uniformity and seeks to reinstate an appreciation for weirdness, otherness and ambiguity. The unclassifiable, human/animal beings created to that end were much inspired, Gutheil says, by Hieronymus Bosch, David Hockney and Matisse. This is the artist’s second exhibition in Portugal at Galeria Nuno Centeno. Gutheils new series of works have been produced during the 2020 world wide pandemic crisis.
