Katrin Valgemae

Born: 1979

member since: 2019


Katrin Valgemäe is an Estonian painter and ceramic-artist whose paintings are expanding from canvas to porcelain dishes.
For artist the theme of female beauty has become a major preoccupation and feminine narratives tie her works together. Depicted figures are often classically painted, beautiful women, who simultaneously reveal menacing grotesqueness. Technical sensuousness of the figures keeps them on the fine edge between attraction and repulsion.
