These beautiful abstract paintings are by Svenja Deininger (°1974) who lives and works in Vienna, Austria. I love her collage like compositions and the superb choice of colours in her work.

Her recent work is a nod to painter Phillip Guston, who named several of his works Untitled / Head during his transition in the late 1960’s from painting pure abstraction to what he called “the thing.” Deininger pushes this reference forward and explores in her new body of work how to bring an idea to physical appearance.
