This is the first publication to provide insight into the broad spectrum of work by artist Thilo Heinzmann (*1969). Heinzmann works primarily in the field of painting, taking its classic concern, the production of expressive pictures, and making it his own. He makes use of a series of techniques he developed himself and materials such as unbound pigment, absorbent cotton, styrofoam, fur, or porcelain, which expand the scope of painterly techniques. Heinzmann’s genuine contribution to contemporary art is that he has used these media to achieve painterly qualities such as composition, color, and texture within the continuity of the history of the medium while at the same time opening new doors. This book features high-quality reproductions that convey the characteristic materiality of his works.
