Cornelius Völker, About Painting 2011–2016, 2016
Situated between calligraphy and Realism, Cornelius Völker is famous for his painterly virtuosity. Applied to an iconography of quotidian subjects and paired with artificial, almost outlandish colors, his paintings subvert any mode of perception by the beholder. This exhibition catalogue provide an overview of his work from 2011 to 2016 with an emphasis on his most recent works.
Since completing his studies at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf Völker has consistently and continually developed his painterly means of enquiry, and has established a distinct artistic positon. His recurrent preoccupation with film, photography and drawing has influenced his approach and his output until today
