Sascha Braunig’s High Contrast Paintings Create Hypnotizing Visual Effects

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Sascha Braunig’s paintings nearly overwhelm the eyes with their barrage of contrasting colors. Their CMYK color palette gives her works a digital glow. Iridescent gradients shift from yellow to electric blue, hot pink to neon green. Geometric forms and patterns contour her figures’ faces and bodies, their voluminous forms more akin to the images produced by 3D modeling software than rendered with a paintbrush. Braunig’s paintings feature an Op Art aesthetic executed with realist techniques, resulting in an otherworldly portraiture style filled with optical illusions.
