The exhibition, titled Tim Eitel: something there somewhere outside, will feature a selection of works that meditate on painting’s relationship to time and space. On view from November 17, 2023 to January 13, 2024, this presentation, which takes its title from a line in a Samuel Beckett poem, will mark Eitel’s first solo show in New York since 2009.
Eitel’s practice has been influenced by both European figurative painting and American abstract painting. He rose to prominence as a member of the New Leipzig School, a group of figurative painters that coalesced at the Leipzig Academy of Fine Arts in post-reunification Germany. After studying painting under Arno Rink, Eitel moved to Berlin and co-founded the cooperative gallery Liga in 2002. For the past two decades, the artist has culled and simplified elements from a rich repository of photographs and memories to create his atmospheric paintings. Methodically layered and meticulously composed, his work centers on precise representation.
