LOOKING AND LISTENING, ANDREAS SCHULZE
Posted on June 25, 2013 by Editorial Staff
The last Venice Biennale d’Arte put a lot of evidence on mature artists. It’s a marvelous thing considering that in the latest year, in contemporary art, if you weren’t twenty something, you weren’t nothing. Apparently people is starting to appreciate mature body of works and experiences and concepts that had been studied and marinated for years. It’s the case of Andreas Schulze. Born in Hanover in 1955, he studied at the Gesamthochschule Kassel and Stattliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he is Professor of Painting. Along years, Schulze has been recognized as an inventor of a new pictorial world and has developed an unique and unmistakable visual language which explore various facets of contemporary society. The work of Schulze is linked with the Avant Gard movement as Dada, Surrealism and Symbolism and his fundamental theme is the power of painting to create illusion. A game between appearance and reality that you will find at Schulze’s second solo show at Spruth Magers London that will open on 28th June 2013.
