This Collector´s Edition is limited to ten exemplars. Each original work (lacquer on canvas, 30 x 40 cm) is signed and numbered by the artist, and comes with a companion publication, Strategien gegen Architekturen (Strategies against architecture).
Conceptually, Sven Drühl dissects visual shapes and types taken from every era from Romanticism to the present day, re-mounting them and combining them with his own motifs. Drühl reacts to the crisis of expression in post-modern painting with these transformed citations, but has purposefully not ceased to paint. His exploration of art history and his continual questioning of painting as a medium are at the heart of his oeuvre. His series of paintings are therefore not only full of tension, but impressive as well.
