Claus Brunsmann’s work oscillates between figurative and abstract art and covers a broad range of form and content. The paintings are characterised by a multi-layered penetration of the medium and its tradition and are deeply rooted in the history of art. At the same time, they open up traditional imagery to unfamiliar interpretations and ways of seeing modern media.
Claus Brunsmann’s works testify to the power of a painting, which aesthetically manufactures, or even invents, the reality in the image. The series of works presented here, all of which were produced between 2001 and 2012 provide for the first time ever a solid panorama of his oeuvre.
