Sep 12 – Oct 26
Opening: Thurday, Sep 12, 6 – 8pm
Working in an eclectic variety of techniques and imagery, Albert Oehlen is considered one of the most influential contemporary painters in the world. Titled New Paintings, the works on view at the exhibition mark the stylistic returns with Oehlen’s hazy, blended, almost impressionistic brushstrokes. By continuously flipping between chaos and control, the works also recall the artist’s Tree Paintings series back in 2013 and yellow-and black paintings from 2018.
