Yves Oppenheim

Yves Oppenheim

Yves Oppenheim’s recent paintings are composed with declarative precision, following the logic of colour and perception. Floating coloured forms are combined and overlap each other in his compositions that look sometimes like collages at first glance. The coloured shapes are rhythmically transformed in variations and follow a general movement or energy, revealing the successive constructions and deconstructions that constitute the work. Yves Oppenheim prevents an immediate understanding of the work; his work intentionally disquiets the viewer and invites to a closer analysis. Oppenheim often lets colour and form exceed beyond the canvas, spreading out on the walls. Parallel to this practice, Oppenheim develops a more personal universe in his drawings and works on paper.
