For Benefactors - Bernice Nauta: Schelm (2019/2020)

Bernice Nauta acknowledges the plurality of identity, approaching it as something amorphous, a recurring theme in Nauta’s work across the board. In her practice, Nauta works with fictional characters and stories in a deeply personal universe. Figures like Schelm, depicted in this painting, a detective personified by a drop of water. The paintings, each made specially for the Benefactor, form a series of copies of an original, each one a version of something existing, each an adaptation with its own characteristics.
