“I don’t want to create a monster, I want to make something which is new, exceptional, something that only I do…something that references tradition, but is still new.” –Georg Baselitz
an exhibition of new paintings and sculpture. In his new paintings, larger than anything he has done previously, Baselitz has revisited provocative aspects of his own history, such as the fractured paintings of 1966, reinterpreting them with the experience of hindsight. Baselitz is also known for his roughly hewn and boldly painted wooden figures, which fuse traditional woodcarving techniques with primitivist and folk art impulses. In conceptual and formal contrast to the expressionist directness of working in wood, he has also explored large-scale bronze-casting. In Sing Song Zero, a double figure derived from a carved wooden form, the lyrical quality of the figures linked by the undulating curves of their arms is countered by the staccato hacks and scars of the original surface that have been rendered in a seamless cast surface.
