Beyond Paradise – Jenseits des Paradieses – Axel Feuß

Figurative or abstract – Sebastian Heiner has yet to decide on an issue which has polarised art in the 20th century. Since the early 1990s, he has painted groups of highly abstract figures who communicate with one other with vehemence and sweeping gestures, figures from all imaginable social layers, in periods ranging from mythological times to the present, and from indeterminate regions of the world.
