Perfect Imperfections

Can beauty be found in ugliness? And is there ugliness in beauty? Astrid Schrage provides her answers to these questions in her paintings. She is fascinated by the human body, and especially by how it is transformed. As plastic surgery has become a commodity, we can all have our bodies enhanced for a price. Schrage shows us the ugly side of these transformations: scars and plastic, made very tangible by the thick layers of paint. She issues a challenge: can you discover the beauty in her paintings?
