Antonius Höckelmann (1937-2000) is one of the most extraordinary German artists of his generation. Born in Oelde, Westphalia, where he completed an apprenticeship as a wood carver, he moved to Berlin to study, and then later spent three decades in Cologne, becoming a fixture on the Rhenish art scene. Abstract, organic forms blend with figural motifs in his occasionally monumental works on paper or sculptural objects made of plaster, Styrofoam, aluminum foil, or bronze. In the 1980s he began producing acrylic paintings in expressive colors. From his Informalist beginnings, to his exploration of figuration and abstraction, to painting in a style close to that of the neo-expressionist Neue Wilde, the Kunsthalle Bielefeld and the Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck present a comprehensive survey of the artist's oeuvre.
