Volker Hueller’s is a contemporary artist whose atmospheric work evokes European art history. He works in a variety of media including sculpture, etching and painting and his oeuvre is inspired by early 20th century German and Austrian art, Art Nouveau, Surrealism, Cubism as well as the American post–World War II art movement abstract Expressionism. This young master is comfortable working with both abstraction and figuration creating work that is mature and timeless.
Roberta Smith writing in the New York Times, observed that ‘the textured surfaces are highly reactive, changing as the light shifts, or as you move about. These works pile on the references — Yves Klein, Manzoni, Marca-Relli, Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and even Julian Schnabel — but carry the weight.’
