From his very beginnings in the late 1980s, contemporary artist Rudolf Stingel (*1956) has been exploring the possibilities and limits of painting. Based on his confrontation with classic pictorial themes, he develops a wealth of motif variations. Alongside various series of abstract and photorealistic paintings, he creates large-scale works made of styrofoam or cast metal, as well as spaces covered in carpets or insulation panels that may be walked on or touched. His works manifest both the random traces of time and deliberately placed references to their own processes of production. The exhibition will be the first museum show in Europe to present a career-spanning selection of Rudolf Stingel’s major series of works. It is conceived in close collaboration with the artist.
