“Isa Genzken’s totemic sculp­tures, colour­ful mir­rored pan­els and lac­quered paint­ings artic­u­late the artist’s mys­te­ri­ous method. Har­vest­ing, fus­ing and re-constructing ref­er­ences from myr­iad sources, she takes an anything-goes approach to the mate­ri­als she uses to con­vey mul­ti­ple mean­ings in unex­pected ways.”
