Perspective shifts, exaggerated proportions, dramatic foreshortening, and mysterious lighting conditions create unexpected spatial relationships that may disorient  the viewer. Though Kneffel's works have the pristine, reflective finish of a photograph, the scenes they depict exist in paint.

A former master student of Gerhard Richter, Karin Kneffel (German, 1957) studied at the Staatliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorf between 1981 and 1987. She has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries throughout Europe. She is represented in many distinguished public and private collections and has received various honors and awards, including the Karl-Schmidt-Rottluff scholarship (1993), Lingener Kunstpreis (1994), and Villa Massimo, Rome (1996). She lives and works in Düsseldorf.
