 Albert Oehlen - Paintings - The Saatchi Gallery
Albert Oehlen sets up the flatness of an abstract expressionist ground; the figures are placed as a separate layer creating an illusion of perspective.
Albert Oehlen relishes the sensitivity of his medium in this celebration of painterly illusion: puddles and washes convey a refracted, dreamlike sensibility, while almost recognisable objects emerge and dissolve against the fluid ground.
Albert Oehlen is a master of ironic wit and his paintings are elaborate strategies of provocation.
