Dorothy Iannone has been exploring spirituality and sexuality for over six decades. Working across a broad range of mediums including painting, drawing, video and installation, the American artist’s riotous, psychedelic visual language draws on Egyptian frescos, Byzantine mosaics and ancient fertility statues, as well as her own personal experiences. ‘A description of me and a description of my work wouldn’t be that different,’ she has said. ‘A longing for ecstatic unity. A journey towards unconditional love.’ A survey of her work is at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk until 11 September.
