“This monograph is the first to offer a complete overview of the works of the Munich artist Nicola Hanke. At the center of her painting is her preoccupation with various surface structures, which she depicts in extreme close-up with almost photorealistic precision and Old Master-like care. The motifs – everyday objects such as bedding, clothing, windows or glass blocks – appear familiar, but their cropped nature makes them seem mysterious and enigmatic. Details draw the eye to what is veiled, hidden, and thus arouse the viewer’s curiosity.” (Source: Kerber Verlag 2014)
