The human figure was always the focus of Friedrich Einhoff’s art practice, right from the very start. He uses his range of motifs in a resolute and imaginative way, moving between differentiation and simplification to create an impressive climax. For Einhoff, the formal possibilities of modernism to present the human form have not yet been fully explored: “(...) his consistent tracing of a dimension (...), that we carry hidden within us as potential images. He brings this out, not as expressionist torn-open facial expressions, but instead hidden within a motionlessness that makes survival possible.” (Werner Hofmann) This monograph was published on the occasion of Friedrich Einhoff receiving the Plakette award from the Freie Akademie der Künste (Free Academy of Fine Arts) in Hamburg and the Hans-Platschek Prize for Art and Text 2009.
