Ketzia Schoneberg is a contemporary mixed media painter, whose figurative expressionist paintings embrace what she describes as the “Liminal,” existing in the threshold between the human and animal worlds. Her works explore an ancestral narrative, cultural identity, exile and introspection, personal mythology and sexuality. Animals, ritual practices, cultural objects and markings populate the personal iconography in these paintings.
A 4th generation artist, Schoneberg is a highly prolific painter, whose expressive style is primitive and engaging. Figurative and abstract elements, vivid color and loose mark making are hallmarks of her figurative expressionist style. She uses acrylic paint, graphite, pastel, charcoal and oil pastel on paper and canvas in her works. Ketzia’s process is intuitive and very loose, often influenced by the palette, materials and imagery that are close at hand in the moment, and drawing from internal and external visual stimulus.
