インカ・エッセンハイ

1969年 ペンシルバニア州 ベルフォント(アメリカ合衆国)生まれ

インカ・エッセンハイが描くビジョンは、神話の人物や妖精、擬人化された自然の住まう、色鮮やかで歪んだ寓話である。彼女の絵画は生命を帯び、呼吸し、波打つ。海原がモンスターに、樹木が女神になり、ジャズバーに通う客が酔っぱらいの悪鬼になる。そうした心象には、集合的無意識と遊び心のある物語が吹き込まれている。それらは、それぞれの風景、建物、人物像の中に入り込んでいく。エッセンハイ自身が語るところによれば、彼女の神話はマジックアワーに得られる「内なるヴィジョンの感覚」に向かっている。ニューヨークを拠点に活動中。
