Oda Jaune – First Water
Now that her paintings have recently achieved a great deal of success around the world, Oda Jaune (*1979 in Sofia) devotes this book to her drawings, which “do not conceal any other layers, apart from the thoughts that have been directly and honestly captured.” For First Water, Jaune selected one hundred works that focus on the human body—often supplemented by an amorphous, thumb-shaped form—revealing a singular world in which the physical is frequently turned inside out. Organs, emotional states, and the subconscious are blended together, rise to the surface, and combine in imaginative, unreal, and occasionally gruesome ways, resulting in disturbing yet at the same extremely poetic works. Jaune lives and works in Paris.
