Yves Oppenheim: Berlin Paintings 2002–2004

Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin 2004
With a text by April Elizabeth Lamm

‘If there were a blueprint – a plan of action – behind Yves Oppenheim’s ‘space of looking’, then one might say that the series produced within the years 2002 to 2004 meanders through a space of changing forms. Much like genes that take their cues from the relative circumstances shaping them, a Rothko-esque beginning flows into an exploration of conflicting paint chips; wild strokes then make an entrance on the canvas stage, canceling out what has taken place underneath. Blobs appear, and successions of layering point towards a discordant symphony.’
