Inka Essenhigh: New Editions and Monoprints
March 5, 2011 - April 16, 2011
521 West 26th Street

The exhibition will feature new intaglio editions and monoprints that the artist has created at Pace Editions Ink. This is Essenhigh's first show with Pace Prints.

Essenhigh's new monoprints and editioned etchings reference many different mythologies--from fairy-tales to Greek tragedies--as well as the spiritual side of nature. She uses these mythic settings as jumping-off points, letting go of the original meaning and capturing the narrative, which she then filters through her own internal dreamscape. Essenhigh makes the imagery hers while referencing the season in which the work was created.

Inka Essenhigh was recently included in Comic Abstraction at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Imagination Becomes Reality, at Museum Für Neue Kunst, Karlsruhe, Germany; and Counterparts: Contemporary Painters and Their Influences, Contemporary Art Center of Virginia. In 2005, Essenhigh had a solo exhibition at the Salamanca Cuidad de Cultura Fundación Municipal, in Salamanca, Spain, with a catalogue including a text by Laura Hoptman. The artist has also had one-person exhibitions at Sint-Luks Galerie, Brussels, Belgium; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, Fla.; and the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2004, Essenhigh was included in the Biennial de Sao Paulo, Brazil, as well as the SITE Santa Fe Biennial in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Inka Essenhigh's work is in many public collections, including Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, N.Y.; Denver Art Museum, Denver, Colo.; P.S. 1 Center for Contemporary Art/ MOMA, New York, N.Y.; Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, Wash; Tate Gallery, London, England; Museum of Fine Art, Richmond, Va.; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, N.Y.
