Pauline Zenk

is a German-born artist who is currently living in Toulouse, France. Most recently, she has researched the interrelationships between portraiture, memory, and identity in Brazil. She received a Master of Visual Arts, History, and English Literature from the University Christian, Albrechts, Universitaet, Kiel, and the Muthesius Academy of Arts Kunsthochschule Kiel, Germany. She also received an MFA in painting at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy of Arts, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

In her artwork, Pauline explores the dialogue between photography, painting, and memory. She often uses found imagery that is pulled from magazine ads, newspapers, photographs, and TV screen shots. With a muted color palette and penchant for blurring the features of her subjects, she creates portraits and nude studies; she explores themes of identity, public versus private life, and the commercialization of the body.
