Fritten und Brillanten
Flower pots and crosses, fries and diamonds – in his large-format paintings Dieter Krieg (1937–2005) never differentiated between the significant things in life and the everyday ones. In over-sized enlargement, Krieg also uses painterly media to wrest the emotion of experienced life from the banal, leaving room for tragedy and comedy, for bodily pleasure and aesthetic sharpness – even for fries and diamonds. Beginning in the sixties, the Lindau-native was one of the most prominent representatives of the so-called New Figuration. In 1978, he exhibited with Ullrich Rückriem in the German Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. The book presents the first retrospective of Dieter Krieg’s oeuvre.
