DANC­ING DOG

Hong Kong Tatler Homes - - EUROCUCINA 2018 - BY RAJA SCHWAHN- REICHMANN

Vi­en­nese artist Raja Sch­wah­nRe­ich­mann dipped into Swiss fairy tales for in­spi­ra­tion—choos­ing a oneeyed dog that some­times stands on his hind legs and is known to pro­voke peo­ple at happy gath­er­ings.

Schwahn-Reichmann’s paint­ings are heav­ily in­flu­enced by baroque style. “So it was hard to do some­thing dark,” she says, “but then I re­alised I liked all th­ese dark fairy tales. With the real mon­sters in the fairy tales, you don’t re­alise who they are be­cause they look sweet.”
