Jörg Immendorff’s large canvases are often fraught with the imagery of a literal theatre of decadence. His stage-set compositions allude to the illusionary aspects of art, presenting a script of personal mythology that is often poignant, humorous, scathing and prophetic.

Myth-making is at the core of Jorg Immendorff’s work. Political iconography, such as the German eagle, Soviet sickle and Socialist Worker’s fist, mix quite literally with his ever expanding cast of characters, including both politicians and artist friends. At the heart is a rewriting of history – both political and artistic – where personal positioning and moral reconciliation are at the forefront.
