From the beginning of his career in the late 1980s, Italian contemporary artist Rudolf Stingel (born 1956) has been exploring the possibilities and limits of photorealism in painting. Made in close collaboration with the artist, this catalog covers the entire breadth of the protean artist’s career.
Alongside various series of abstract and large-scale photorealistic paintings, it presents a selection of his large-scale works made of Styrofoam, rubber, painted aluminum and cast metal, as well as spaces covered in carpets or insulation panels that may be walked on or touched. These works reveal the ambiguity between painting and décor, and question painting's relationship with architectural space and interior design.
Stingel has shown in major museums around the world and is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and others.
