The fabulous world of Portuguese-British artist Paula Rego is a frenzy of images - full of abysmal humor, unapologetically drastic and haunting. Rego's work is particularly powerful when it comes to the fates of women. Characters who were the perfect princess at Walt Disney are completely normal women in her work. Women who care, help and cope with everyday life become worthy of a picture in her work. What there isn't is a happy ending. Over the decades, Rego has created complex, emotionally charged scenes that seem like the stuff of nightmares: they provide a deep insight into human relationships and social, political and sexual power dynamics. The Neue Zürcher Zeitung called her works "crime scenes".
