Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Drawing largely on his native Germany’s post-war identity, mythology and history, Anselm Kiefer worked as a sculptor, painter and installation artist – having grown up around the fallout of the second world war, amidst bombed buildings and shattered family ideals, Kiefer has commented that ‘ruins, for me, are the beginning...with the debris, you can construct new ideas’.
« believe art has to take responsibility
but it should not give up being art. »

Anselm Kiefer
Margarete is perhaps one of Kiefer’s most recognisable paintings – comprised of oil and straw on canvas, the painting is inspired by a fictional character created by Romanian poet and Holocaust survivor, Paul Celan – Margarete was an Aryan woman with blonde hair, and the straw used in the piece is a representation of this.
 
« Art really is something very difficult. It is difficult to make, and it is sometimes difficult for the viewer to understand. It is difficult to work out what is art and what is not art. »
Anselm Kiefer


Unflinching and raw, Kiefer’s work seeks to process and analyse past events; such an approach has led to him being linked with the Neo-Expressionist movement – further emphasised by his use of such materials as ash, clay, lead and shellac.

What is activist art?

What is activist art?

Activist art is art created to address social and political issues. It is a kind of performance art because it is presented in public, working closely with the community which will create it. One example could be creating and posting social protest fliers in exhibition.
