Oehlen coincidence


160917b Parents Children (2016) oil on canvas 24 x 28cm

I made this painting in September, working from imagination. Now I’ve found this Oehlen painting from 1985. A small coincidence, and for once I can be sure this is only a coincidence. I’m certain I hadn’t seen this painting before.


Rotes Haus Albert Oehlen (1985) oil, lacquer and mirror on canvas

Oehlen has attached mirrors to the canvas. Mark Godfrey describes the context of Oehlen’s mirror paintings in his lecture below.
