Mr. Peeps, Home at Mike Weiss Gallery

February 6, 2016 - Stephanie Buhmann, Downtown Express

"Her saturated compositions frequently embrace otherworldly landscapes that are populated with a colorful array of fable creatures. Stylistically, these paintings can border on the bizarre, perhaps sourcing from German Expressionism as much as children’s book illustrations."

Stefanie Gutheil's 'The Home of Mr. Peeps' reviewed in Cargo Collective

February 2, 2016 - Cassie Packard, Cargo Collective

"Coherence and beauty secure their seductive position through control, erasure, and exclusion: think to the airbrushed body, the boiled-down history textbook, or the disciplined Modernist grid. Excess, on the other hand, dribbles and squelches with a disagreeable, unsightly ooze. As self-abnegation’s tacky inverse, excess’s power lies in its refusal to curtail itself for another’s comfort or pleasure."

Stefanie Gutheil: The Home of Mr. Peeps

January 13, 2016 - Howard Halle, Ed., Time Out New York

Paintings by this Berlin artist combine aspects of Expressionism and Neo-Modernism to render cartoonish pageant of grotesque figures and critters. Whether they’re meant to represent dreams or stray thoughts rattling around the artist’s head, these compositions evince a fantastical tone that is part Rousseau, part Dada.

"In her fourth exhibition with the gallery (“Stefanie Gutheil: The Home of Mr. Peeps”), the artist invites her audience to dive deep into her imagination. Her saturated compositions frequently embrace otherworldly landscapes that are populated with a colorful array of fable creatures. Stylistically, these paintings can border on the bizarre, perhaps sourcing from German Expressionism as much as children’s book illustrations."
