Exhibition

3 Sept-9 Oct: ‘Pola V’, Jochen Mühlenbrink

Gerhard Hofland is proud to present Pola V, an exhibition with new paintings by German artist Jochen Mühlenbrink (1980, DE). This is Mühlenbrink’s fifth solo-exhibition with the gallery.

Perhaps best known for his exquisite trompe l’oeiltechniques, Mühlenbrink’s latest series of paintings can best be regarded as a philosophical approach to painting. By executing seemingly natural optic effects in paint, he is investigating the ambiguity of reality. Mühlenbrink’s works are depictions of physical reality, fictitious images and physical objects at the same time. Fogged windowpanes, for example, are in reality nothing but oil on canvas and exist both through the illusion they produce and the material of which they consist.
