christopher west presents is proud to present an exhibition of new work by Berlin based artist Henning Strassburger. In Strassburger’s paintings we see energetic layers that create a lively depth to the image which reminds of the gestural-abstract painting. He is interested in the questions of painting and the positioning of his work inside the multitude of trends that have been developed and named in the course of the past few years.
Strassburger (b. 1983 in Miessen, DE) lives and works in Berlin. Recent solo exhibitions include Good Old Figuration (2010) at the Sammlung Deutsche Bundesbank in Frankfurt, A Kansas City Shuffle (2009) at Verein für Raum und Form in der Bildenden Kunst in Vienna, and Happy P. (2009) at Galerie Fiebach & Minniger in Cologne. Strassburger completed his Meister Schule at the Dusseldorf Kunstakademie under Prof. Albert Oehlen in 2009. Strassburger’s work was included in Informal Relations (2010) at the Indianapolis Museum Of Contemporary Art. This marks his first gallery exhibition in the United States.
