ODA JAUNE: IF YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES. ROADS Publishing, Dublin, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 176 pp. with 118 col. ills. 32 x 27 cm. ISBN 9781909399396 In English; foreword and 2 essays also in French.
Publisher's description: Oda Jaune was born in Sofia, Bulgaria. She studied in the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf in the class of Jorg Immendorff, who she later married. Her art focuses on the biomorphic, the collaged, the abnormal, which ensure that her work continually evades the viewers grasp. Her work plays with the themes of ambivalence, attraction and withdrawal. Internal organs and emotional states blend together in imaginative, unreal, and occasionally gruesome ways, resulting in disturbing yet poetic works. Deformities, masks, and phallic-like growths distort the subject being portrayed and elude the viewers search for clarification. Her high-profile and controversial marriage thrust Oda into the public eye. This book strips back her celebrity and allows her unique talent to speak for itself. In 2012, she won the Pierre Cardin Prize in the Best Painter category. She is represented by Galerie Daniel Templon in Paris.
