Biography

The work of Anselm Reyle is intimately linked to Modernism, borrowing, critiquing, and reinventing its conventions all at once. Reyle’s abstract sculptures and paintings are made with fluorescent colors, found objects, and shiny common materials including foil, glitter, and mirrors. Inspired by early abstract painter Otto Freundlich and using techniques innovated by Jackson Pollock and Barnett Newman, Reyle self-consciously revives aspects such as Hard-Edged stripes and the gestural brushstrokes of Abstract Expressionism. In 2011, Reyle made his affinity for popular culture explicit, designing accessories for fashion house Dior.
