Georg Baselitz: Das Negativ

Image coming soon.

R. Donnelly blogs about the exhibition Georg Baselitz: Das Negativ at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Salzburg, on view through August 31, 2012.

Donnelly writes: "In Das Negativ, Baselitz paints from photographic negatives, resulting in a necessarily dark palette, with subjects obscured in their reversed portrayals– a step beyond the artist’s usual practice of painting his figures upside down. Though essentially painted from life, Baselitz subverts any realistic elements with his intense gentural abstraction, and tenebrous palette."
