Neo Rauch is one of the most significant artists of our time. In a category of their own-independent of the predictable rhythm of the developments defining the art of the past several decades – his works have taken the world of art by storm. The complex paintings of Neo Rauch take viewers into a recognizable world, which, as familiar as it initially may seem, then produces feelings of confusion and sometimes unease upon closer examination. In a range of forms we are confronted with human existence in all its complexity, in situations of interaction and isolation that often are rooted in the past eras of Central Europe. Rauch fills his painting with his own dream images, visions, companions and fellow travelers. The dynamics of his paintings bond with our own sensibilities. They become part of us, as if they were able to breathe and provide comfort on a daily basis through their penetrating presence. The works of Neo Rauch celebrate the power of art and affirm the acts of painting and looking at painting as vitally necessary.
