Berlin's Galerie Neu exhibited new works by young American-Uruguayan artist Jill Malidi, united by the title "Mouth to mouth". The general theme of all these paintings is water, but as a substance, not an object. It is a source of life and youth, but also a carrier of germs, dirt. She is everywhere - polluted, aggressive, muddy, wet.
The characters in the paintings of Malidi are slippery sea creatures and ghosts visible beyond the threshold of consciousness. The artist is inspired by the works of such masters as Ensor, Soutine, Sharden, Budin and William Merritt.
