Uwe Henneken, Europa endlich, 2009.
Oil on canvas, 102×76.5cm

“Uwe Henneken’s work reflects upon the human condition; the search for meaning and fear of the unknown. When the work includes a figure it is placed in the painting as an awkward interloper, searching or confused. Because Henneken moves between and imitates different styles of painting, the figures are forced to grapple with the ever changing art-historical backdrops that surround them, leaving the viewer to consider what is aesthetically good, and contemplate the cyclical movement of cultural trends.”

Andrew Keps Gallery. Hennecken reviewed by Frieze
