A book devoted to one of the most influential contemporary painters, divided into three parts where Albert Oehlen plays simultaneously the role of the artist, the curator and the collector.One of the most respected painters today, Albert Oehlen has explored the possibilities of painting since the 1980's, constantly questioning its methods and means through an ever-evolving style and technique. The book ranges from early figurative works from the 1980's till his 2018 series on a bright yellow background. Many of the works are monumental in scale.At the core of his practice are the limitations he imposes on himself as a point of departure, in order to have 'something to push against' and thereby expand and redefine our understanding of painting.Oehlen's practice began with figurative paintings, which were defying the context of the 1980's were minimal and conceptual art prevailed. His provocative position, subjects and manner have been linked to the notion of Bad Painting throughout the early 1980's alongside artists such as Werner Büttner and Martin Kippenberger. Oehlen has moved towards abstract painting in the late 1980's, continuously redefining his own vocabulary. His first abstract paintings were notably followed by black and white computer-based paintings, collaged canvases with fragments of advertising posters and paint applied on top, Fingermalerei (Finger Paintings) in the 2000's and paintings fully covered with poster cutouts.

Albert Oehlen (*1954 in Krefeld, Germany), a student of Sigmar Polke and close friend of Martin Kippenberger, is known to be a provocateur for challenging the boundaries of painting and embracing a remarkably wide range of styles. The publication Grau is an intimate examination of his series of grey paintings created between 1997 and 2008. Oscillating between figuration and abstraction, the paintings defy conventional categorization. Amid muddy nebulas and amorphic brushstrokes, mysterious depictions of figures, objects, environments, and landscapes emerge. In opposition to other series where Oehlen also used digital tools, the grisailles are strictly made by hand without the distraction of color --an unmistakable nod to fellow German artist Gerhard Richter. The richly illustrated publication also contains an original text by writer and poet Raphael Rubinstein and an interview with artist Albert Oehlen himself.

Four decades after he first burst onto the international art scene in the early 1980s, Albert Oehlen (born 1954) remains among the most influential and controversial painters of the present. Operating between figuration and abstraction with vigor and energy, Oehlen relentlessly critiques painting's history, its clich�s and its relationship to the imagery of the advertising and pop industries--all within the medium itself (rather than in another art form). Reproducing 110 works, this volume, designed by Heimo Zobernig, takes something of an artist's book approach to Oehlen's oeuvre, emphasizing its methodological complexity, vitality and conflicts. Alongside an interview between Oehlen and fellow painter Daniel Richter, this catalogue contains conversations on the implications of Oehlen's work between Rochelle Feinstein and Kerstin Stakemeier, and between Hal Foster and Achim Hochd�rfer.

By stripping the painting down to its basic rules, by using himself as a decisive subject matter, Oehlen created a body of work that diminished the limitations of previous cultural, aesthetic, and artistic obligations made on a painter and painting. This first volume to feature all of Oehlen's early self portraits reveals his balancing of figuration with abstraction, and his simultaneous questioning of the practice and history of art.
