Aspen Art Museum: Amelie von Wulffen Exhibition

| October 1, 2012 | Calendar

"Blending abstraction and figuration, Romanticism and psychedelia, von Wulffen’s large-scale paintings wryly revisit and reprocess tactics and tropes of modern painting from German Expressionism onward, while recent series of drawings have tweaked the conventions of the children’s book, the comic strip, and the storyboard, turning these formats into vehicles for her own psychologically charged narratives. Von Wulffen’s installations often exceed the boundaries of the canvas or page, extending into the exhibition space in the form of wall paintings and furniture that conjure images of bourgeois interiors and nod to modern art’s longstanding pas de deux between abstraction and decoration.
Von Wulffen’s exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum—her first solo exhibition in an American museum—includes a new body of paintings created during her time as the AAM’s 2012 Jane and Marc Nathanson Distinguished Artist in Residence." via
