Stefan Sehler

Stefan Sehler is based in Düsseldorf and Berlin, and lives and works in both cities. Sehler creates his works in an unconventional manner, working with oil and metallic paint on the reverse of plexiglass panels. This entirely painstaking and precise process, although having the appearance of intending to create representational foliage and tree branches, is entirely abstract and it is this duality which marks his beguiling work as highly intriguing. In enquiring into this notion of opposing ideals, Stehler pursues ideas and concerns also shared by his country's elder statesmen of art, Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke.

In 2009, Stefan Sehler had a solo exhibition at Musée d'Art moderne et d'Art contemporain de Nice.
