Markus Lüpertz New Paintings at MICHAEL WERNER

Veröffentlicht am 10.06.2017
James Kalm takes viewers on a strolling tour of New Paintings by the recognized German master, Markus Lüpertz. This outing presents over two dozen paintings from the past two years featuring the painter’s engagement with the Neo-Classic tradition. With a glancing nod to artists such as Nicolas Poussin, Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, and Hans von Marées, Lüpertz simultaneously expresses a sense of “the anxiety of influence”, and also a transgressive response byway of primitive parody.
Now in his mid seventies, the artist still maintains a heroic stance as a unique individual craftsman and aesthetic shaman. These subdued works are presented in rustic artist made frames and include paintings on collage, chipboard and corrugated cardboard, and harkens back to Lüpertz’s rugged early works of the Neue Wilden period. This program was recorded on June 9, 2017.
