The Woman Herself: Leonhard Hurzlmeier’s abstract portraits highlight the current discussion on women and identity

Leonhard Hurzlmeier’s (*1983 in Starnberg) colorful oil paintings depict archetypal images of women involved in everyday life: riding bikes, protesting, getting ready in the morning, as a dentist or an architect. Provocative, ambiguous, sometimes erotically charged, sometimes critical and distant, and always humorous, the portraits unfold a panorama of current debates about gender identities. With geometric shapes that recall the masters of modernist portrait painting—such as Alexej von Jawlensky, Oskar Schlemmer, Pablo Picasso, Auguste Herbin, and Fernand Léger—Hurzlmeier creates images of women somewhere in between the way women perceive themselves and the way they are perceived by those around them.

Featuring lavish plates and personal essays by Ronja von Rönne, Barbara Vinken, Daniela Stöppel, Verena Hein, and David Cohen, as well as an interview with the artist, this bibliophile’s publication presents the work of a young painter who promises to keep our interest for a long time.
