Von Lintel Gallery is pleased to announce Condition, a solo exhibition of new photographs by Marco Breuer opening Thursday, May 10.
Featured as a "Season Pick" in the Village Voice's Spring Guide 2012.
"The rich colors and sumptuous textures of Breuer's abstractions have a kinship to Gerhard Richter's paintings, not least because both artists have chosen to upend the usual figure/ground balance in their chosen mediums."
