Neo Rauch

Heilstätten

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Neo Rauch, on display at the gallery's 533 West 19th Street space. The exhibition, the artist's fifth solo show at the gallery, consists of small and large format paintings–several larger-than-life–as well as a bronze sculpture, representing one of the first instances Rauch has worked in three-dimensional form.

Born in 1960 in Leipzig, then East Germany, Rauch is part of a generation of artists who came of age in a war-torn, divided country. While his older East German peers, including Georg Baselitz, Anselm Kiefer, Sigmar Polke, and Gerhard Richter, emigrated to the West during the Cold War, Rauch spent his youth in the Eastern Bloc, and received his arts education at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig. The impermeable border within Germany famously tempered the advance of Western avant-garde movements in the East, where figurative painting maintained its predominance. Not until the end of the 1990s did a shift become apparent, and Rauch, then in his late twenties, came to spearhead a break with the existing dogma.
