Albert Oehlen describes his paintings as ‘post-non-representational’. Through exploring and challenging the tropes and expectations of conventional abstraction, he strives to reconstitute a contemporary meaning for art as an independently articulate form.

In works such as Untitled, Albert Oehlen lavishes the picture plane with a clichéd exaggeration of painterly expression. Awkwardly encumbered, the sophistication of Untitled lies in its audacity, teetering on the razor edge between misfortune and masterpiece.
