Strategies Against Architectures collects recent works by German painter Sven Drühl (born 1968). There is more to his meticulous and reductive landscapes and architectural scenes than initially meets the eye; they are drawn not from life but are interpretations of works by artists from Caspar David Friedrich to Ed Ruscha.
Conceptual paintings that remix or reinterpret historical and contemporary landscapes, quoting from Caspar David Friedrich, Claude Monet and Eberhard Havekost, among others. Drühl, who works in the tradition of Serial and Appropriation art, sometimes fuses separate painting fragments, creating quotation collages. This monograph spans from 2001 until 2005.
