The Workshop

The fun is to be creative. And go with the flow. Sometimes you can´t stop working then you need a little time to just look at the paintings and carry on or paint another. Don´t worry just work was something my old singing teacher said, and maestro Lüpertz is a bit like that. Just paint another painting if you are not happy. Carry on.

“Everything you can imagine is real”

 Pablo Picasso

Lüpertz emerged amongst a generation of post-war German artists in the 1960s that grappled with finding a stylistic approach that relied on neither figuration nor abstraction. This translated into a series of “dithyrambic” paintings consisting of figurative elements interspersed with abstract blocks of color. Deeply suspicious of the populist and fascist connotations of figurative art, and yet dissatisfied with coat-tailing American abstract expressionism, Lüpertz and his contemporaries, such as A.R. PenckGeorg Baselitz, and Gerhard Richter, welcomed the challenge of pursuing a unique blend of abstract figuration. It’s an important time in Lüpertz’s career, as he’s finally getting the recognition in America that he’s long enjoyed in Europe.
