This volume takes up the concept of one of Oehlen's recent installations, in which he juxtaposed paintings from 2008 with his "post-non-figurative" work from 1991. Of his recent paintings, he states, "I wanted emotions! Big colorful things with immediate appeal." The book as a whole proves the range of his artistic curiosity, which challenges itself, the viewer and the medium of painting with its ever-evolving approach.
