Museum Exhibitions

Tim Eitel


Rochester Art Center, Minnesota

January 26 – April 28, 2013

Tim Eitel has gained a reputation as one of the best young painters working today. Recognized as a leading representative of the “New Leipzig School” of painting—a moniker imparted on a small group of artists who together attended the Leipzig Academy of Visual Arts—Eitel has risen to international prominence for his distinctive approach and contributions to the field of contemporary painting.

Many of Eitel’s enigmatic works contain representational subjects inhabiting reductivist environments. From slate grey clouds in an ominous sky to a small fire burning in outward isolation, Eitel employs a palette of minimal, muted color to arresting effect. For his exhibition at Rochester Art Center—his first large-scale survey exhibition in the United States—32 works completed between 2002 -2012 provide a broad insight into the artist’s practice over the last decade.
