VERUSHCHKA, short for Vera Gottlieb von Lehndorff.
In 1970s, Veruschka, who was one of the most celebrated supermodels of the 1960s, resurfaced as Vera Lehndorff, a painter and performance artist. She establish a collaborative relationship with Holger Trülzsch (b. 1939, Germany), a musician, painter and sculptor working near Munich. She would recede into rock beds and snow covered walls, into wooden doorways and windowpanes, and into corroding industrial complexes. The artists devised a system in which the front half of Lehndorff’s body was meticulously painted to match precisely the coloration, coarse textures, and intricate patterns of the surfaces before which she positioned herself. The figure merging with architectural structures and natural environments produced trompe l’oeil tableaus of hidden spectral forms captured by Trülzsch in a series of vivid color photographs.
Framed in fine wood gallery frame, mat archival, top matted.
