This exhibition will be the first comprehensive presentation of artist Peter Saul (b. 1934) in Germany. Saul’s idiosyncratic style draws on Pop Art, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Chicago Imagism, and California Funk in its explorations of American politics and pop culture. He shared Pop Art’s interest in the banal, the consumer society, and the cheerful imagery of comics in bright attractive colors. Deliberately provocative, Saul’s paintings explore the American dream with extravagant humor and harsh criticism.
This exhibition was also on view at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Germany, (June 2–September 3, 2017).
