André Butzer has been one of Germany's most prominent and internationally influential artists for more than 20 years. His early work was characterised by an expressive figurative art that oscillated between cartoon and high culture. In the last 10 years, he has gradually erased all superficial motifs and representation in his painting. Since 2010, he has been approaching an absolute and non-representational, yet at the same time deeply existential, imagery.
This book provides the first-ever cohesive overview of Butzer's painting since 1994. It shows the impressive consistency with which he constantly interrogates the fundamental issue of the "image as an image" and its relationship with our existence. This consistency is apparent from the beginning of his career right up to the "N pictures" of today. Sein und Bild / Existence and Image
