Fools and artists have something in common. Fools once held up a mirror to their masters, but also to society. In the current contemporary (art) scene, individual artists often take on this role directly or they let their works speak.

Artists stand apart from society even today. Women artists have an even harder situation in this field than their male colleagues.

Against this background, I portrayed female artists as fools in arranged pictorial compositions. The figure types of the „Commedia dell’arte“ gave me the space to not only superficially point out these problems, but also to let the personal stories, emotions, and thoughts of the portrayed female artists shine through in the form of „loaded role portraits“.
