With simple forms and vibrant colours, Raphaela Simon delicately evokes a pictographic inventory of the ordinary. Simon’s large paintings depict trousers, wristwatches, trash cans, and strawberries, each afloat over hazy, monochromatic backgrounds. While these paintings appear wholly representational, they carry a powerful conceptual undercurrent: Simon achieves a picture-book simplicity that transforms her paintings into recurring motifs of memory and nostalgia, as if these visual totems each possess a forgotten narrative. Her sculptures further complement these themes: stitched together with fabric, wood and wire, a cast of soft mannequins suggest the busy centre of an imaginary village, full of policemen, dogwalkers, and daily commuters. Together, the works in Erdbeeren seem to point not towards realism but rather the essence of the subjects depicted.

Raphaela Simon was born in 1986 in Villingen, Germany and currently lives and works in Berlin. She studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. Recent exhibitions include Sterne, Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin (2019); Karo, TRAMPS, New York (2017); Staubsauger, Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin (2017); and Tischlein deck dich, Hannah Hoffman Gallery, Los Angeles (2016).
