Markus Lüpertz, Ohne Titel, 2020, Mischtechnik auf Papier, 93 x 72,5 cm. Courtesy Galerie Michael Werner Märkisch Wilmersdorf, Köln & New York.
Michael Werner Kunsthandel is pleased to present the exhibition „MARKUS LÜPERTZ – NEW WORKS ON PAPER“, showing drawings on paper, originated in 2020.
„It needs to be said that Markus Lüpertz’s drawing occupies a special place in a body of work that has emerged through a series of decisions, even if it does not lend itself to interpretation in terms of style or content. Indeed, its very existence seems to reject interpretation, if not explicitly repudiate it. Much of what is surprising and disconcerting about this painter, sculptor and poet is to be found in the way he conceives and goes about his graphic art. […] Drawing, which through colour is closely related to painting, allows a freedom that is constantly nurtured by the thing painted in order to respond to it, to challenge it, and to accentuate what can be achieved by an adventurous drawing that takes those risks that only a drawing can take.“ (Éric Darragon).
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
