Preview: Femke Hiemstra’s “Fiebertraum” at Merry Karnowsky Gallery

Known for her richly-detailed storybook worlds, Femke Hiemstra will debut a new solo show at Los Angeles’ Merry Karnowsky Gallery titled “Fiebertraum” (“Fever Dream” in German) this Saturday, June 22. For this new series, the artist presents some of her most elaborate work yet. Hiemstra illuminates private moments in the lives of her anthropomorphic animal characters, exposing her viewers to intimate household scenes and spiritual experiences alike to give a well-rounded understanding of this imaginary world. The new work for “Fiebertraum” is brimming with visual details from the presentation (many of the paintings are rendered on altar-like panels adorned with tassels) to the patterns and textures of the animals’ fur. Hiemstra will be showing alongside Deedee Cheriel and Mel Kadel. Take a look at some of the work in the show below and check out “Fiebertraum” June 22 through July 20.
