Preta Wolzak

Preta Wolzak is based in Amsterdam and has exhibited internationally. This show incorporates a series of silk scarves with images of plastic dolls she has augmented and photographed. Wolzak studied Monumental Design at the Gerrit Rietveldacademie from 1986-1991. Since then she has worked in commission in applied arts: she made illustrations for book covers, she designed and made furniture, designed exhibitions, designed interiors for private people and companies. The baby dolls, seemingly childrens toys, become grotesque in their quest for beauty. Her latest series, “Fighting Women”, was recently shown at Art Basel Miami 2018.
