Sven Drühl: Undead

22.09.2007 - 30.11.2007 visit by appointment

A painter who says of himself that he cannot paint. An image, which exists exclusively from repetitions of well-known motifs. Art supplies that come from the hardware store rather than from the finely-stocked stores for art supplies. Silicone, acrylic and industrial paint - every now and then it may also be oil paint. It all sounds like painting as a concept, as affirmation as resistance. Sven Drühl is in a certain way a dialectician. He moves skillfully, and in a positive sense unobtrusive, between the poles. His reinterpretations in the repetition of motifs create presence through withdrawal and timeliness through eclecticism.
