“Matuschka’s work is self-absorbed but her self-absorption has nothing to do with either narcissism or the reverse narcissism of self-loathing. She is her own raw material. And she looks at her raw material objectively and manipulates it unflinchingly in a way which now seem uncannily predictive.“
The autobiographical photographs in this scroll gallery begin in 1972 when Matuschka was still in high school and experimenting in the dark room. Many of these images are toned, printed on Gelatin Silver Paper, as C prints, or archival Iris Prints and manipulated by the artist. Photos in this gallery have been reprinted as postcards, posters, and have are included in a wide variety of international publications, catalogues, covers of magazines, exhibited in Museums, collected both publicly and privately and received numerous awards. Please see bibliography for further information.
