Apart from collages, paintings and objects, the oeuvre of the South African-born, Netherlands-based artist Marlene Dumas, who established herself as one of the foremost contemporary European artists, is primarily characterized by water colours. Her suggestive works are mostly based on photographs from magazines which she blurs, crops or distorts. With this, Dumas explores the sexualized dynamics between picture, painter and viewer. Her openly sensualistic representations of human bodies and faces always deal with central questions of life. The book features a broad selection of the expressive watercolours by the artist, expounding on the primary topics in Marlene Dumas work: cliched pictures of the female, relations of the sexes, role plays, sexuality and pornography, guilt and violence, birth and death. A special feature is a number of Collaborations – works of which the artist created with her daughter Helena and the painter Bert Boogaard
