Dieter Nusbaum

Dieter Nusbaum’s work is unmistakably characterized by a delight in diversity, both in terms of motifs and style. You can almost feel the much-vaunted artistic creative urge in the powerful painterly formulations on the canvas. “We can’t rely on good pictures being painted one day, we have to take matters into our own hands!” If Sigmar Polke and Gerhard Richter jointly issued this slogan back in the 1960s, Dieter Nusbaum’s self-confident implementation can be verified here and now: The artist draws on a comprehensive repertoire of painterly means which, when brought together, intoxicate the viewer at best. But a broad spectrum also opens up on the motivic level. Allegories, portraits and everyday motifs stand side by side on an equal footing.
