Neo Rauch: para
The distinctive and atmospheric paintings of the German artist Neo Rauch (born 1960) defy easy interpretation, falling somewhere between Surrealism and popular imagery. At once familiar yet alienating, seemingly full of activity yet emotionally static, Rauch's large-format pictures combine real, narrative and dreamlike elements, and transport the viewer into bizarre landscapes populated with semi-recognizable figures and strange beings. This vital collection of recent paintings offers an incomparable insight into the influential artist and his exploration of a parallel world where the normal is mixed freely with the absurd and the paradoxical to create works of art that are fantasy represented as fact.
