Olaf Breuning‘s second solo exhibition entitled “Two Lakes” at von Bartha Basel, presents a vibrant new body of work that includes several large tactile paintings placed in dialogue with three stone sculptures. Known for his humorous approach, Breuning uses the world around us to interrogate and initiate conversations about nature itself. For “Two Lakes” the artist exhibits a new series of paintings in which he playfully addresses pressing topics such as global warming and environmental disruption. The works in the exhibition, which convey Breuning‘s multi-layered oeuvre, including large woodcuts, paintings and sculptural installations, were inspired by the artist’s surroundings in upstate New York, including trees, raindrops, flora and fauna.
