Albert Oehlen: Works on Paper

Galerie Max Hetzler Berlin | Paris, 2016
With a poem by Howard Nemerov

Albert Oehlen's graphic work forms a central part of his multifaceted oeuvre. Even though the affinity and interaction with his paintings is visible, Oehlen's works on paper distinguish themselves from his paintings and mark an independent category. Restless dashes, drawn with ink, form complex arrangements on white paper. Black lines are crossing and overlaying each other, condensing into tortuous bundles before fleeing into the void. Upon small format Oehlen develops works that occupy and survey this particular space. Beside abstract elements also human forms – bodies or mere single limbs – can be perceived, spreading over the sheet and immediately dissolving into abstraction.
