Opening on Saturday February 19th, the gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by the German painter, Neo Rauch. This will be the artist's first solo exhibition in the United States.
Neo Rauch was born in 1960 in Leipzig and was 29, when the Berlin wall fell. His childhood and formative years were spent within the confines of the East German communist regime, with little exposure to the discourses of the west. Trained at the Leipzig Academy by the old school of Socialist Realist painters, Neo Rauch worked through various stylistic changes finally embracing a distinctly figurative approach to his work.
