Inka Essenhigh paints her visions: richly colored, distorted fables peopled with archetypes, sprites, and anthropomorphized nature. Essenhigh’s work has been included in numerous shows in the United States, Europe, and South America, including Comic Abstraction at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, USA Today at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, England; Second Berlin Biennale, Germany; SITE Santa Fe Biennial, New Mexico; and Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brazil. She has also exhibited her work in many one-person shows in museums, such as Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, Florida; DA2 Domus Artium, Salamanca, Spain; and Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, Scotland. She is represented by Victoria Miro Gallery, London, and is currently preparing for Between Worlds, a show of new and older work at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville, Tennessee, scheduled for the summer of 2016. She lives and works in New York City.
