WOLFGANG TILLMANS "GLYPTOTHEK MUNICH", 2007
Wolfgang Tillmans (b. 1968) is one of our favorite artists and we are excited to be offering this fantastic example of his work.
Tillmans is a worthy successor to Nan Goldin. His images, often more abstract and elusive than Goldin's, similarly reveal his experiences and encounters both within his domestic sphere and through travel.
Tillmans won the Turner Prize in 2000 and was one of the most provocative and contested recipients. Not only was he the first photographer to win the prestigious prize, but was also the first non-English.
His body of work is vast and has allegiance to no genres. Tillmans has worked in fashion photography, portraiture, still life, collage and installation.
Some of his earliest exhibitions included covering gallery walls with a broad range of images in assorted formats; oversized C-prints, color photocopies, magazine tear-outs etc. This diversity of medium and planned informality predicts many of the art-world trends that would manifest almost a decade later.
Today examples of his work can be found in institutions around the world including the Centre Pompidou (Paris), the Guggenheim (NYC), the MoMA (NYC) and the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam) and the MOCA (Los Angeles) to mention a few.
