Press release

Almine Rech gallery is pleased to present Markus Lüpertz's first exhibition with the gallery.

Lüpertz is perhaps the most pronounced 'painter amongst painters'. Indeed, the artist does not attempt to imagine the one or other alternate reality, but creates, first and foremost, a new pictorial space. In this, he utilizes all possible techniques, textures, formats and frames. He is constantly exploring the universal dimensions of painting. His search is based on the history of the painterly medium itself. Yet his work is also thematically based on a range of universal human values ​​such as freedom, equality, courage, passion, love, beauty, culture and the like.
