Braunig’s paintings and drawings combine vibrant color and an hypnotic style. Her works reflect upon illusion and the surface of the represented subject. In dream-like scenes, where repetition and patterning are foregrounded, Braunig’s figures emit an extrasensory glow. Flaring with reflected color, they are iridescent beings whose very skin seems to be a source of psychic power. Foreground, background, and figure often merge, as if the subject is expanding into, yet also constrained by, the frame of the painting.
