New. The work of Cornelius Volker (born in 1965), a Dusseldorf based contemporary painter, is celebrated in a mid-career retrospective by a museum exhibition that opens in February 2011 at the Museum Villa Stuck in Munich and travels on to three other venues in Goslar, Wuppertal, and Ludwigshafen. Volker's colorful paintings deal with simple, often mundane objects, and their everyday approach relates them to Pop Art. Tea bags, sandwiches, chocolates, and other food, but also books and the human figure are his favorite subjects. He paints with almost liquid and bright, artificial colors in a virtuoso 'al fresco' speedy manner-as if he wanted to merge Pop Art, caricature and action painting in his images.
