It is a great delight to showcase today the sensual paintings of Redd Walitzki in my Artist Watch column at the online arts magazine Escape Into Life.

Currently a resident of Seattle, Washington, Redd was born in Germany and produces mixed-media works influenced by the rococo ornamentation of her native Bavaria, nature, and ideas about high-fashion, technology, and fleeting beauty. Primarily a figurative artist, Redd takes deep pleasure in experimenting with artistic media, techniques, and technologies that push the boundaries of her creativity.

For today's Artist Watch, Redd has provided six images from her "Stranger Than Earth" series of paintings, as well as three close-up images that reveal details that viewers might otherwise miss. In addition, you will find Redd's Artist Statement, a brief biography, and a list of social media.

Redd's wonderful paintings can be seen from November 18 through December 3 in the group show "Lush" at Bein Art Gallery in Brunswick VIC, Australia.
