SHOOTING BACK 
“Scheurwater’s work evolves in the tradition of the self-portrait in photography. Think for example of Robert Mapplethorpe’s sexually charged visual provocations or Francesca Woodman’s erotic mise-en-scène, to name only two artists. Scheurwater‘s visual self-explorations extend the boundaries of another main topic in art history and photography: the pose. But in her pictures model and artist are one. Yes, this is sexually explicit work, but even more it is a curious and smart research about herself, where the artist looks at herself from both sides of the mirror.” Walter Keller
