With Mylar foil and straw bales, painted stripes and gestural drips, German painter and sculptor Anselm Reyle (born 1970) breathes new life into the motifs of Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, Minimalism and earlier movements, leaving no modernist master untouched in his reprisings of their motifs.

Anselm Reyle (born 1970) uses materials such as PVC film, acrylics, mirrors, concrete and auto paint to produce wild abstractions in paint and sculpture that drip with infectious energy. This massive and luxurious volume is printed on a variety of paper stocks in 11-color, and is the first large-scale survey of his work.

This luxurious four-color album, with two additional fluorescent colors, has been made to the young German artist's specifications. While Reyle is primarily a painter, it is light in particular with which his paintings are concerned, both the light hitting pigment on canvas and, particularly, electric light, pale and acid, from the lamps and neon signs of the modern landscape. His found objects, almost readymades, function, therefore, like indices to his pictorial work. The phosphorescence of the paint, or that the paint gives to the objects, can be understood as a puzzle about a problematic medium, one whose solution here induces a new confidence and surprising expectations and wakes up the gaze. Reyle is represented in New York by Gavin Brown.
