The things you do to me

Wouldn’t it be nice to see your grandma serving your five o’clock tea in these ceramics? This is a first glance on the work of german artist Caro Suerkemper. Women are in the spotlight: her small watercolors constrain the characters in the width of a cup, they’re transposed from everyday life, dressed or stripped naked, sometimes caught in lusty bondage scenarios. The purpose of the instant comic effect is to create distraction and confusion.
