Lost in the Stars at Frieze: Volker Hüller at Timothy Taylor Gallery
Berlin-based artist Volker Hüller puts a contemporary spin on modernist painting and etching, incorporating various mediums into his practice. Figurative yet surrealistic, Hüller's work combines geometric shapes with fragmented body parts, creating large-scale, Miró-esque pieces. His delicate, scratchy linework provides a striking contrast to collaged pieces of snakeskin, velvet, foil, and trash. Hüller also incorporates acid etching and applies faded watercolor and shellac onto his pieces to add emphasis.
German, b. 1976, Forchheim, Germany, based in Berlin, Germany
