The gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by German artist Neo Rauch at its Hong Kong location. Widely celebrated as one of the most influential figurative painters working today, Rauch is known for richly colored and elaborate paintings that contain a repertoire of invented characters, settings, objects, and motifs. At once realistic and familiar, enigmatic and inscrutable, his paintings often hint at broader narratives and histories—seemingly reconnecting with the artistic traditions of realism—yet they are dreamlike and frequently contain disparate and overlapping spaces and forms. 

Field Signs follows his 2021 solo exhibition The Signpost at David Zwirner New York and marks his second solo show at the Hong Kong gallery, following his 2019 exhibition Propaganda. His work is the subject of the 2023 solo exhibition The Dream of Reason at MoCo Montpellier Contemporain, France, and Neo Rauch: Die Mitte, which was on view at Museum de Fundatie, Zwolle, in the Netherlands, in 2022.
