Volker Eichelmann

Volker Eichelmann was born in Hamburg, Germany and lives and works in London. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions at Ancient & Modern, London (2013), Galerie Andreas Huber, Vienna (2012) and Silverman Gallery, San Francisco (2011). Recent group shows include Women's Art Society, Oriel Mostyn, Wales (2014) and Weekend in Valmouth, Ancient & Modern, London (2012). Eichelmann is currently Associate Professor in Fine Art at Kingston University. Artistic precedence is central to Eichelmann's practice as he seeks out forgotten or overlooked practices from the past to reconsider their contemporary critical potential. His series of text-paintings combine drawing, painting and collaged text to present brief autobiographical utterances culled from their original context and transformed into poetic evocations of distant places and encounters. Other recent collage works are an interplay of construction and disintegration, collage and painting. The works here were included in the England & Co exhibition Color Mahogany Center: Volker Eichelmann & Sir Francis Rose (14 March - 5 April 2014).
