Tessa Perutz

Tessa Perutz’s artworks function as psychological landscapes, touring the fields and valleys of the earth as well as the inner mind. Her works are a testimony to spontaneous exploration: pinpointed with anecdotes, hasty jottings and existential ponderings, Perutz’ oeuvre is shaped by processes of conceptualization and intuition, organically intertwining & informing one another. Paintings are echoed in others, mirroring seriality through repeated motifs and evocative use of colour.

A solo exhibition of Perutz’s work, How to Map the Infinite, took place at Casino Luxemburg in 2023.
