Gerhard Hofland is proud to present 'FOG', by Jochen Mühlenbrink (1980, Freiburg, DE). This is Mühlenbrink’s fourth solo-exhibition with the gallery.
Jochen Mühlenbrink’s latest series of paintings can best be regarded as a philosophical approach to painting. By executing seemingly natural optic effects in paint, he is investigating the ambiguity of reality. These fogged windows are balancing between a celebration of painterly illusion and dystopian iconoclasm. The fog panes - their pristine surfaces disturbed by a seeming finger - at once become an image-in-image and also show what can be seen through them.
