Info

It’s with great pleasure that we present the third solo exhibition by Volker Hüller in Amsterdam. Titled L.I.T.S. Homo Naledi, the exhibition will be on view at the gallery from June 4th until July 16th, 2016.

Volker Hüller’s work invites associations from the viewer that range from citing Expressionism, Modernism, to Bauhaus, to Cubist influences, especially in an age when art historical images have never been so accessible for the spectator to project on a work. While Volker himself states that influences from art history dating back to the turn of the 20th century are “a good farmer’s market to get some ingredients for your stew”, it is actually not quite so singular, as observed by Daniel Kunitz when he writes: “.. it is not the reference to motifs or characteristic traits of style but much more the search for solutions to the problems concerning Hüller in his pictures; the tension between abstraction and figuration, as well as the treatment of a picture’s surface.”
