Neo Rauch: Works on Paper 2003 - 2004
A beautiful monograph on the work of contemporary German artist, Neo Rauch (how wonderful is that name to say out loud?). Surrealist and realist, dreamlike and journalistic, his work traverses many boundaries. “His strange figures are static extras, despite their apparent vigorous activity. The oddly old-fashioned objects with which they perform could easily have come from a long-locked prop storage room… More than anything else, it is the time encapsulated in Rauch’s paintings that they share structurally with a suspended plot in a theatre performance”.
