FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE- Pace Prints Chelsea is pleased to announce Inka Essenhigh: New Editions and Monoprints. The exhibition will feature new intaglio editions and monoprints which the artist has created at Pace Editions Ink. This is Essenhigh’s first show with Pace Prints. Essenhigh’s new editioned etchings and monoprints reference many different mythologies, as well as the spiritual side of nature. She uses these myths as jumping off points, letting the original meaning go and capturing the internal narrative that is then filtered through her internal dreamscape. The myths aren’t viewed ironically, or at a distance. Essenhigh makes the imagery her own, and additionally references the season that the work was created. Inka Essenhigh was recently included “Comic Abstraction” at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; “Imagination Becomes Reality”, Museum Für Neue kunst, Karlsruhe, Germany; and “Counterparts: Contemporary Painters and Their Influences”, Contemporary Art Center of Virginia. In 2005, Essenhigh had a solo exhibition at the Salamanca Cuidad de Cultura Fundación Municipal, in Salamanca, Spain, with a catalogue including a text by Laura Hoptman. The artist has also had one-person exhibitions at Sint- Luks Galerie, Brussels, Belgium, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, FL, as well as at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2004, Essenhigh was included in the Biennial de Sao Paulo, Brazil, as well as the SITE Santa Fe Biennial, Santa Fe, New Mexico. Inka Essenhigh’s work is in many public collections, including Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY, Denver Art Museum, Denver, CO, P.S. 1 Center for Contemporary Art/ MOMA, New York, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, WA, Tate Gallery, London, Virginia Museum of Fine Art, Richmond, VA, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
