Albert Oehlen

Gallery Bon Bon

Regular price R 400.00

Albert Oehlen, who emerged in the 1980s as part of the loose cohort of avant-garde German artists known as Neue Wilde, pushes painting into eclectic new realms. Throughout his career, Oehlen has embraced an ever-evolving approach to his medium, working through a vast array of styles, techniques, and subject matter. He has used strict constraints to organize his canvases and made paintings with the help of inkjet printers, design programs, and references to digital pixelated lines. His practice has careened between figuration and abstraction, rigorous formalism and poetic gesture, and tradition and technology. Oehlen has exhibited in New York, London, Berlin, Paris, Hong Kong, and Vienna. He has participated in the Venice Biennale, the São Paulo Bienal, and the Lyon Biennale, among others, and his work belongs in the collections of the Museum of Modern ArtThe BroadSaatchi Gallery, and the Daimler Contemporary. His paintings have sold for seven figures at auction. In 2019, Oehlen exceeded his $4.7 million auction record when his work Untitled (1988) sold in an online viewing room for an undisclosed price.
