This is the first publication to provide insight into the broad spectrum of work by
artist Thilo Heinzmann (*1969). Heinzmann works primarily in the field of painting,
taking its classic concern, the production of expressive pictures, and making it his
own. He makes use of a series of techniques he developed himself and materials
such as unbound pigment, absorbent cotton, styrofoam, fur, or porcelain, which
expand the scope of painterly techniques. Heinzmann’s genuine contribution to
contemporary art is that he has used these media to achieve painterly qualities such
as composition, color, and texture within the continuity of the history of the
medium while at the same time opening new doors. This book features high-quality
reproductions that convey the characteristic materiality of his works.
