Birthday Art Portrait: Madeline von Förster

Hey Kleinski,

happy Birthday from the Doomstrasse yall! You might expect some musically related present from me but here’s something different. It’s a short portrait of my wonderful girlfriend Madeline. Enjoy and keep on bloggin!


Portrait of Madeline von Foerster: an interview with the New York based artist about “The Red Thread” – the key painting of her 2010 solo show “Reliquaries” at Strychnin Gallery, Berlin. Von Foerster works in “mischtechnik,” a mixed technique of oil and egg tempera used by the Flemish Renaissance Masters. Her current series is concerned with endangered/extinct wildlife, and also inspired by the reliquaries of the Ursula church in Cologne, Germany.
