Rudolf Stingel

Over the past twenty years, Rudolf Stingel (born 1956 in Italy, lives and works in New York and Merano) has examined the nature of memory while expanding the scope and definition of painting. Central to his oeuvre is the passage of time rendered palpable, together with the expansion of the vocabulary of painting and its perception: from the abstract tulle silver paintings of the 1990s to the carpet installations that aestheticized both the surface of spaces and visitors' traces; from the series of melancholic self-portraits to the latest golden canvases that bear the traces of time and action in the studio. Stingel's artistic output is prolific and visually diverse, yet meticulous and generous in its offering.
