Anselm Reyle is considered one of the most pivotal artists of the 21st century. Unparalleled, Anselm Reyle recycles and actualizes the formal accomplishments of 1960-1970’s abstract modernism, and subsequently reapplies them to constitute an entirely new visual language. His artistic language reexamines our aesthetic awareness and challenges us to question our assumptions and rationale as to the parameters of art in relation to history and it’s imprint in contemporary culture.
By exploring the fringes of art and design, Reyle creates often visually spectacular works that simultaneously confront us with a conceptual nihilism, at times incorporating such futuristic traits as day-glo and fluorescent paint, neon light, silver Mylar and sheets of mirror. For his wall objects made of acrylic glass, the artist arranges the folds in his foil works intuitively in the tradition of informal painting. The compositions are direct references to modern predecessors such as Arman and Yves Klein, combined with the surfaces of Modernism that have gone on to become recognized as high culture – in turn further confronting the viewer to question habitual functions and classifications.
