Albert Oehlen | Julian Schnabel

Galerie Max Hetzler Berlin | Paris | London / Holzwarth Publications, Berlin 2018
With texts by Glenn Brown and Christian Malycha

‘There is a fine and noble sense of rebellion in the paintings of both Albert and Julian, which comes, I presume, from them having a fierce streak of individuality. Neither, I imagine, would relish the prospect of being considered a part of a group or movement, or even being compared to any other living artist. Both have set their sails for uncharted waters, leaving the safety of the dry land of academia in favour of the rough seas of artistic freedom. The expressive physicality of their paintings gives us an indication that each has a very personal vocabulary of gestural marks. Their works are very clearly, undeniably, and profoundly “theirs”. Their personalities are writ large. That, at least, is how we might first see these two self-styled rebels.’

G. Brown, ‘A fine sense of rebellion’, in Albert Oehlen/Julian Schnabel, exh. cat., Berlin: Galerie Max Hetzler and Holzwarth Publications, 2018, p. 7
