Modernist urban architecture, cultivated landscapes and large expanses of sky are the principle elements in Berlin- and New York-based Tim Eitel's paintings. Individual figures or groups in which each member is nonetheless isolated populate these backgrounds. "Offnung" (2006), for example, shows a huddle of schoolboys in uniform lounging in a non-descript Modernist interior, physically close but not interacting. Eitel, who studied at the venerable Art Academy of Leipzig in the early 1990s, has become one of the most successful painters of the New Leipzig School. Carrying a camera wherever he goes, Eitel takes snapshots and paints from them. In the past few years, his time in Los Angeles and New York has greatly influenced the architectural elements of his work. This volume is published in conjunction with exhibitions at ARKEN Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen, Berlin's Galerie EIGEN+ART and Kunsthalle Tubingen.
