Albert Oehlen: InterieursAlbert Oehlen: Interieurs

Published by Holzwarth Publications.
Text by Michael Bracewell.

This book presents a recent series of large-format collage paintings by German artist Albert Oehlen (born 1954), utilizing cheerily cheap advertising posters. The compositions reveal themselves as interiors only on second gaze: edges of walls and floors, the elegant curve of a designer chair.

Albert Oehlen: PaintingAlbert Oehlen: Painting

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Achim Hochdörfer. Foreword by Karola Kraus. Interview by Daniel Richter, Rochelle Feinstein, Kerstin Stakemeier, Hal Foster, Achim Hochdörfer.

Four decades after he first burst onto the international art scene in the early 1980s, Albert Oehlen (born 1954) remains among the most influential and controversial painters of the present. Operating between figuration and abstraction with vigor and energy, Oehlen relentlessly critiques painting’s history, its clichés and its relationship to the imagery of the advertising and pop industries--all within the medium itself (rather than in another art form). Reproducing 110 works, this volume, designed by Heimo Zobernig, takes something of an artist’s book approach to Oehlen’s oeuvre, emphasizing its methodological complexity, vitality and conflicts. Alongside an interview between Oehlen and fellow painter Daniel Richter, this catalogue contains conversations on the implications of Oehlen’s work between Rochelle Feinstein and Kerstin Stakemeier, and between Hal Foster and Achim Hochdörfer.

Albert OehlenAlbert Oehlen

Published by Holzwarth Publications.
Text by Anne Pontégnie.

This volume takes a close look at a recent development in the career of painter Albert Oehlen (born 1954), scrutinizing eleven works from late 2004 to 2005, in which collaged elements first entered the artist’s celebrated abstractions. Oehlen has long maneuvered between figuration and abstraction, and here, amid a muddy palette enlivened by streaks of fresh blues and pinks, collaged fragments of landscapes or human faces peer out, sometimes jarring and sometimes blending with the composition. As Anne Pontégnie points out in her essay, these works “combine experiments of the past with a momentum toward future experiment. Here is an energy in which pleasure, humor and elegance rub shoulders with anger, ugliness and brutality.” These works are given luxury treatment in this volume, which offers nine of the eleven paintings in superbly printed full-color gatefolds.

Albert OehlenAlbert Oehlen

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Stephan Berg, John Corbett, Christoph Schreier.

For over 30 years, German painter Albert Oehlen (born 1954) has been building a body of work distinguished by its skeptical questioning of painting as a medium. Instead of turning his back on painting, though, the artist has chosen to engage with this skepticism within the medium itself. Oehlen followed his rude, provocative Neo-Expressionist attacks of the 1980s with a cooler brand of computer-based images in the 1990s, followed by a subsequent series of painted-over advertising and his more recent, abstract expressionist works, all while striving to maintain a balance of painterly passion and critical distance. This catalogue features exemplary works from the artist’s various creative periods, and emphasizes two unifying themes that run throughout Oehlen’s work: his engagement with abstraction and his notion of “post-non-figurative painting,” and the often underemphasized relation of his line to his plane and his drawing to his painting.

Albert Oehlen: Abstract RealityAlbert Oehlen: Abstract Reality

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Anne Montfort.

Designed by Oehlen himself, Abstract Reality pairs two series: a new sequence of large-format paintings and drawings from 2008/2009, published here for the first time; and an earlier cycle of works from 1990 to 2000. By making this conjunction, Abstract Reality invokes Oehlen's working methods, since he continually references previous works.

Albert Oehlen: 1991 2008Albert Oehlen: 1991 2008

Published by Holzwarth Publications.
Interview by Max Dax.

This volume takes up the concept of one of Oehlen's recent installations, in which he juxtaposed paintings from 2008 with his "post-non-figurative" work from 1991. Of his recent paintings, he states, "I wanted emotions! Big colorful things with immediate appeal." The book as a whole proves the range of his artistic curiosity, which challenges itself, the viewer and the medium of painting with its ever-evolving approach.

Albert Oehlen: Mirror PaintingsAlbert Oehlen: Mirror Paintings

Published by Holzwarth Publications.
Edited and with essay by Katja Hesch.

As Albert Oehlen points out, artists have often depicted mirrors. But in this case he's built real mirrors into each work. With them, he collages the real space in front of the painting with its pictorial space, at once subverting the glass's iconographic significance and inviting the viewer into the picture--only to throw him back out again.

Albert Oehlen: SecessionAlbert Oehlen: Secession

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Artwork by Albert Oehlen.

Albert Oehlen's continuing restless quest finds its latest manifestation in these Secession paintings of 2003-2004. The paintings can be divided into two groups, which engage in a kind of dialogue: Gray abstract smears with faint figures struggling to find form (or lose it altogether), and more colorful, collage-based works in which photographs glued directly on the canvas are surrounded by the artist's large-scale brushwork.

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Essays by Ralf Beil, Thomas Groetz and August Strindberg.

For the past quarter century, the work of Albert Oehlen, thick with both imagery and paint and awash in deliberate messiness, has constantly questioned the very notion of what painting is. This retrospective catalogue, with some 80 images, reveals the scope of Oehlen's his investigations, as well as a bravura slipperiness.

Albert Oehlen: Self PortraitsAlbert Oehlen: Self Portraits

Published by Skarstedt Fine Art.
Interview by Rainald Goetz.

By stripping the painting down to its basic rules, by using himself as a decisive subject matter, Oehlen created a body of work that diminished the limitations of previous cultural, aesthetic, and artistic obligations made on a painter and painting. This first volume to feature all of Oehlen's early self portraits reveals his balancing of figuration with abstraction, and his simultaneous questioning of the practice and history of art.
