Jürgen Brodwolf, Malerhimmel (Painters’ Heaven); Livingstone Gallery, The Hague

Jürgen Brodwolf (1932) – immediately recognizable as an artist of his generation – is famous for his Tubenfigure (tube figures), based on squeezed out paint tubes.

In his work they have become a metaphor for the basic human figure, as part of the collective unconscious, but also becoming a metaphor for creation, its material and its inspiration.

Livingstone Gallery presently has a small exhibition of his work, which is a very interesting introduction.
