Cowboys and Indians? German artist Siegfried Anzinger appropriates unexpected cultural references ranging from the Bible to pornography to the American West for the brilliant works in this dynamic, large-format exhibition catalog. Anzinger has broken with his trademark impasto application of paint and his past approach to figurative representation, and the effect is quite literally like a brilliant light suddenly shining brightly. These loose, almost improvisational pieces create a painterly panorama that recalls epic works by David, Delacroix or Gerricault: dramatic, wide-ranging, and very personal. Includes photos of the artist’s expressive, almost disturbing, ceramic sculptures.
