Friedrich Einhoff’s (born 1936) works on canvas and paper captivate with their delicate, multilayered surface handling, with coal and sand admixed; opaque earthy beige and gray tones offer a corporeal quality. This catalog presents an in-depth look at Einhoff’s work from the past four years.

At the core of Friedrich Einhoff’s sweetly melancholic oeuvre is the formal reduction and expression of the human figure. Drawing inspiration from art history, newspapers and magazines, Einhoff’s paintings are at once eerie, seductive and compelling. In Darkroom, Einhoff presents his newest works from 2011 and 2012.

Hamburg-based artist Friedrich Einhoff's blotchy, relic-like paintings depict a sweetly melancholic realm of seemingly dispossessed, genderless beings with obscured faces who seem to be suspended between worlds. At once eerie and seductive, Einhoff's work inhabits a realm of his own devising, of which the paintings appear as documents or snapshots.
