The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Li Songsong

Historical Materialism
In his paintings Chinese artist Li Songsong makes use of media sources, which he fragments, focuses, and alters. In this way his paintings function like a perceptually enhanced, distanced form of historical painting. Particularly in recent years Li Songsong has been closely examining how globalization is increasingly changing societies. One of the hallmarks of Li Songsong’s art is the way that he breaks up the entire image into mosaic-like color fields comprising centimeter-thick layers of paint. In his work, paint takes on a consistency resembling ice cream, which is broken up in highly contrasting ways.
