An exquisite use of contour line and thoughtful experimentation with both abstract and representational techniques characterize much of the work by Brooklyn-based, German artist Volker Hüller. In this work, a forest is suggested through a mix of abstract trees and large leaves, which sink their roots into vibrant, multicolor soil that contains a body – possibly alluding to a mystical dream sequence or something darker. A build-up of painterly layers gives the work a rich, sensuous quality that is moody and beautiful. Hüller’s work has been included in solo and group exhibitions in galleries in the US and Europe. His work is in the collections of MoMA, New York, and The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, among others.
