Neo Rauch

Feb 25, 2013


Neo Rauch is known for his puzzling, seemingly narrative paintings. The people in them are busy with something or other; they don’t seem to entirely fit in with their surroundings. Rauch has developed a highly individual style, a mix of realism, abstraction with a surrealist touch, and influences from pop art and comic strips. His dreamlike compositions seem to be peopled by memories of the GDR.

“My paintings have something vital about them, like an animal, a living thing,” says Rauch. “You don’t have to understand them, just to feel that this creation, to the greatest possible extent, is at peace with itself.”
