Lost Horizons

Udo Rein



ISBN: 9783777437972 Category:


Udo Rein (b. 1960) is a video artist and painter and lives in Munich. In his work he examines social and cultural contrasts worldwide. His pictorial language starts out from documentary film sequences and builds on fractal constructions and deconstructions which he translates into collages of film stills and oil and acrylic paints on wood panels.

Our society frequently presents us with polished surfaces and clear structures. These serve as the starting point for Udo Rein, whose pictorial compositions then lead us deep into the back streets and abysses of our worldviews. Looking beneath the veneer opens up perspectives in a multi-faceted but also contradictory world which is both erotic and mysterious. The lavishly illustrated volume is the first comprehensive monograph on the artist’s impressive oeuvre.
