Tübingen 1970 - lives in Berlin
As little as Anselm Reyle allows himself to be limited to one medium and instead oscillates between painting, sculpture and installation, as diverse are the sources from which the artist draws his inspiration. From classical modernism to music and architecture to pop art, he takes up a variety of elements, which he recontextualises and incorporates into his works in a modified form, sometimes provocatively exaggerated. Found and discarded objects, which Reyle detaches from their original function, glittering materials, mirrors or neon lights are part of the artist's versatile material fund. High and low culture, kitsch and art meet at eye level. Reyle's foil works and stripe paintings, in which he transforms decorative material from the consumer world into abstract paintings, are among the artist's best-known works.
Anselm Reyle (born 1970 in Tübingen, Germany) quickly gained international recognition in the 2000s: in addition to solo shows, e.g. at the Kunsthalle Zurich, he participated in important museum exhibitions, including the MOCA Museum for Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; New Museum, New York; Palazzo Grassi, Venice; or the Tate Modern, London. His work is represented in important collections such as the Nationalgalerie - Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Berlin; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Pinault Collection, Venice; Saatchi Gallery, London; and the Rubell Family Collection, Miami.
