JÖRG IMMENDORFF
New Paintings
24 January through 24 March 2007
UPPER EAST SIDE, NEW YORK
 

Jörg Immendorff's newest paintings continue to explore the artist's deep interest in an evolving, personal iconography, re-contextualizing symbols and characters of earlier series alongside images from contemporary and historical events. New imagery appears, shifting the focus to themes of violence, death and the passing of time: scenes from Goya's "Disasters of War", for example, commingle with imagery from current conflicts in the Middle East and elsewhere, allowing the artist to simultaneously explore themes of personal and global significance.
