Wolfgang Neumann does not produce ‘easy’ paintings: they contain intense, vivid colours, worked in powerful brushstrokes that evoke compelling and spontaneous impressions. Neumann moves with confidence upon the stage of art history and contemporary history. In his paintings and via their titles, he adroitly observes our times and our understanding of reality.
In addition to the paintings, he also creates multi-layered pencil drawings, and recently also assemblages; all are comprehensively displayed in the catalogue.
Through their intellectual vigour and the diverse ways that they rupture the false realities of our media age, the works of Neumann reflect the condition of our times.
