Agnes Thurnauer

Like one of her models, Thurnauer is a contortionist. She plays with words, paint, her personal history, oscillating between the poetic quality of Filliou’s work and a Manet-like joy of painting. The former is often quoted in her paintings, like the face of the barmaid of Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère (Un Bar aux Folies-Bergères) appearing in a rear-view mirror. Her work can be seen as an « Art of Quotation », referring to various artists, from Tintoretto to Warhol or Duchamp in a personal way.
