Koether used to edit the German culture and music publication Spex and has been based in New York since the 1990s. In her vibrant paintings she shows a fascination with the German ‘bad painting’ of Martin Kippenberger and Albert Oehlen, while taking unabashed pleasure in the physical, handicraft of art-making and its associations with traditional women’s work. Her lush style is reminiscent of the fluid nature of street art, DIY and self-published comic books, and shares a similar disregard for traditional ideas about technique.
