Information

Christopher Lehmpfuhl’s expressive paintings chronicle the ecstasy of an immediate experience of reality, the act of seeing, as well as the transformation of the seen within painting. The artist always paints in front of his subject matter: some people might have already seen him go back and forth – highly focussed, with paint-spattered clothes – between canvass, paint bucket and palette, zooming in on his subject, before stepping back to barehandedly apply the paint to the canvas with precise movements. He thus creates three-dimensional colour reliefs with a strong haptic quality.
