About

Nahmad Contemporary is pleased to present Albert Oehlen: Grau, on view from Nov. 7 through Dec. 23, 2017. The exhibition brings together a selection of twelve exceptional gray paintings by the influential German artist, Albert Oehlen. The exhibition is the first ever to offer an intimate examination of this important series by a provocateur known for challenging the boundaries of painting and embracing a remarkably wide range of styles.

Created between 1997 and 2008, in the wake of the artist’s original black-and-white “computer” paintings and concurrently with the brilliantly colorful “switch” paintings—two series that utilized digital tools in their creation—the gray paintings hone in on painterly gesture and material essence. Oscillating between figuration and abstraction and made strictly by hand without the distraction of color, these large grisaille works on canvas embrace painting’s conventional tools in order to expose the inadequacies of the medium itself.
