Biography

Tim Eitel uses photographs that he takes of urban spaces as the basis for his paintings, resulting in works that are both realistic and detached from reality. Many of Eitel’s paintings and lithographs are of figures or obscured objects taken out of context and placed in an ambiguous background painted in muted, industrial colors. Eitel often depicts solitude and marginalization through objects such as the disheveled mattress in his painting Matratze (2008) or the receding pile of clothes in Liegende (2006).
