Wolfgang Tillmans Exhibition @ Regen Projects Gallery In Los Angeles

Regen Projects presents an exhibition of photographs by German artist Wolfgang Tillmans. For his seventh solo show at the gallery Tillmans brings together a broad selection of new and previously unseen work that spans the various themes, visual motifs, and processes developed over the course of his career. The exhibition revisits long-standing interests present in the artist’s oeuvre. A recent picture depicting a pair of black shorts draped on a banister references an early motif expressed in ‘grey jeans over stairpost,’ taken in 1991. Several startlingly pink large-scale abstract works from his signature Freischwimmer/Greifbar series are prominently affixed onto the gallery walls. Examples of Tillmans’s interest in exploring the fundamental qualities of the photographic process, these non lens-based photographs are the result of light exposed onto color photographic paper. Shown together these works challenge common perceptions of the real and question how photographic processes change our conception of the world around us. The exhibition will be on view until December 23, 2016 at Regen Projects in Los Angeles. photographs by Oliver Maxwell Kupper
