David Zwirner is pleased to present Propaganda, an exhibition of new paintings by German artist Neo Rauch. On view at the gallery’s Hong Kong location, this exhibition marks the artist’s debut solo presentation in China and will be accompanied by a catalogue featuring a short story by Daniel Kehlmann.

Rauch was born in Leipzig in 1960. As a young artist, he began developing his own unique style of figurative painting that was distinct from the then dominant socialist realist aesthetic of his native East Germany and the neoexpressionist styles that were popular at the time in the West. Today, Rauch is widely celebrated for his visually captivating compositions that bring together the traditions of figurative painting and surrealism into an entirely new kind of aesthetic experience. Propaganda will feature both large- and small-format paintings by the artist. Appearing at once familiar and enigmatic, these works extend Rauch’s exploration of painting through both personal and historical perspectives and further highlight his masterful skill as a colorist. The show marks Rauch’s eighth solo exhibition at David Zwirner, where he has been represented since 2000.

 

卓納畫廊榮幸呈獻德國藝術家尼奧·勞赫(Neo Rauch)的全新作品展 – 《宣傳》(Propaganda)。是次展覽將於卓納畫廊香港空間舉辦,為藝術家在大中華地區的首次個人展覽。畫廊還將為展覽製作全新圖錄,收錄了德國小説家丹尼爾·凱爾曼(Daniel Kehlmann)以勞赫作品為靈感創作的短篇小說。

勞赫1960年出生於萊比錫。年輕時就已經開始發展自己獨特的具象繪畫風格,這與當時在他的家鄉東德佔主導地位的社會主義現實主義美學以及當時在西方流行的新表現主義風格截然不同。如今,勞赫的作品獨創性地將具象繪畫和超現實主義這兩種傳統融合成全新的視覺體驗,也因此而備受讚譽。《政治宣傳》將同時呈現藝術家大小尺幅的全新油畫作品,進一步體現勞赫對於繪畫的個人性與歷史性、神秘與熟悉感之間的探索,並且也凸顯了他作為色彩大師的精湛技藝。這次展覽為卓納畫廊自2000年起代理尼奧·勞赫以來為其舉辦的第八次個人展覽。
