Art Works 2012 Kai Althoff at the Whitney Biennial, New York City


Kai Althoff’s art works are rendered with rudimentary simplicity: shape, tone and colour create a totality of exquisite presence.The works are ebullient with a contained elegance, deceptive in its complexity. Some can be said to be an overture of dandyism with reference to Egon Schiele. Kai Althoff tenders his paintings with the contrived scrutiny of the most discerning connoisseur.
