Armin Boehm

With a mesmerizing use of color that draws visible psychological relationships across his compositions, Berlin-based painter Armin Boehm embeds his subjects into a prismatic world of figuration, symbolism, and cultural reference. Group scene or still life, Boehm’s works travel through a world where George Grosz’s claustrophobic depth of field sets the scene for Otto Dix’s unique brand of the grotesque, where urban bohemianism meets the shrill, queer, decadent and esoteric, where the cult of the body blends into hybrid, double-faced gender neutrality—and at the same time where flowers are carried away from political, as if from another time. The result is psychedelic in the most contemporary sense of the word: deeply emotional, highly intellectual, and ultimately a revelation of the energy that pulses between people, objects, and their surroundings.

Born in Aachen, Germany in 1972, Boehm studied at the Staatliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Konrad Klapheck and Jörg Immendorff. He is represented by Meyer Riegger, Berlin/Karlsruhe as well as Peter Kilchmann, Zurich and has been featured in exhibitions at Susanne Vielmetter Gallery, Los Angeles, the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, the K21 in Düsseldorf, both the Städel Museum and Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt. In 2017 he will present a solo exhibition at the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen.

Der Duft Marcelles, 2016

For this exclusive collaboration with Amazing Editions, Boehm continues his exploration of the floral still life and its symbolism with a painting produced especially for this edition. Composed of an interplay of thick, dry color and cloth collage elements, Der Duft Marcelles (Marcelle’s Smell) draws its name and inspiration from the obscene works of Georges Bataille. As a print, it is clear, flat, and yet exceedingly tactile, leading the viewer deeper into Boehm’s singular expression of art historical reference points with its own seductive beauty. It also offers an equally fresh interpretation of the use of flowers as means to express fragility, sexuality, and desire—a tradition of pictorial expression that is, indeed, as old as symbolism itself.

Der Duft Marcelles (Marcelle’s Smell) is presented as a very limited edition of 33 prints. An archival print on Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper, we are pleased to offer this exciting opportunity to bring a unique voice in contemporary painting into your collection.
