"If you consider a frozen lake or clouds over the sea, no one has made these especially for you. I want to be that no one behind my paintings". Reiner Heidorn

Artist Reiner Heidorn is a German Modern Expressionist who draws influence from artists like Martin Kippenberger, Dieter Roth and Hans Hartung. Reiner’s work often fuses more gestural techniques found in works by German Expressionists with stylized figures of young children, which echo Asian Manga. In some series Heidorn includes transparent foil over photographic images providing a far different texture than the matte surface seen in his other works. After years of showing more figurative work, Heidorn now has many more abstract pieces, which show his interest in movement and the buildup of paint.
