- Albert Oehlen
This exhibition allows us to assess the Oehlen work in all its scope since it left figuring at the end of the 1980s. Is a sample designed to suit the artist, a new designed to bring production work of Oehlen public of La Casa Encendida.
Despite having lived a historical moment with other German artists such as Werner Büttner or Martin Kippenberger at the end of the 1970s and early 1980s, Albert Oehlen has pursued a path of own and unique, while continuing to engage in the art scene in every moment. The artist challenges us to assess and interpret a work that collapse almost all of our certainties about the painting, step by step by opening new avenues for your appreciation.
His work is characterized by its heterogènia, methodology, your palette and your gender. In his painting is equally the subject and medium. His ability to work the collage, abstraction and figuration sets a unique among Styles dialog. It's a process reminiscent of the surrealist "exquisite corpse", in which a method follows another way apparently spontaneous composing in this way a complete color plan. The designs created with the help of the computer provide another dimension to the works juxtaposing in them the hand of the artist and the footprint of the machine thus creating a Web of action and visual reaction.
