This summer, some of Germany’s most noted artists are lending their talents to two high-profile productions at prestigious music festivals. In late June, Georg Baselitz furnished somber and mournful sets for Pierre Audi’s production of “Parsifal” at the Munich Opera Festival. Meanwhile, in Bayreuth, the husband-and-wife artist duo, Neo Rauch and Rosa Loy, are working on the new “Lohengrin” overseen by the American director Yuval Sharon, which is set to open the annual Wagner Festival on July 25.
There’s something you can’t quite put your finger on in German artistRosa Loy’s large format compositions of enigmatic female subjects. Like most artists associated with the New Leipzig School—including her husband Neo Rauch—Loy produces figurative works executed with an acute emphasis on technique. Her dedication to highly technical figuration aside, Loy’s works are nothing short of mystifying.
