Philipp Neugebauer

My recent practice focuses on painting in Acrylic and has its origin in drawing. My work is strongly influenced from art history; in particular the beginning of the 20th century. My work often evolves around my German origin. It springs from the tension of history and present and the question of an identity merges into my paintings. I combine these themes in drawings that then get translated into paintings. Most of my imagery is paradoxical it wants to be paradoxical to irritate; but it still has some relationship to here and now, maybe because most of the themes are chosen from a historical background. The work is a combination of many factors; chances, choice of painting manner and playfulness with imagery. The imager seems to build a relationship on the canvas but don’t loose its own identity in the process.
