Paul Pretzer

All the pleasure and all the pain

Paul Pretzer paints scenes depicting fabulous creatures engrossed in absurd acts with allegorical still-life arrangements. His figures are usually placed in undefined spaces with staffage-like walls and empty doorframes. The fantastical projections that are created reveal stylistic connections to the works of Flemish Primitive painters such as Hieronymus Bosch, but also to the style of black comedy exemplified by Tim Burton. Combined with references to contemporary everyday culture, he produces an absurd melange that aims to irritate.

All the pleasure and all the pain is the first comprehensive book of Paul Pretzer’s work.
