For his tenth one-person exhibition at Paula Cooper Gallery, Rudolf Stingel presents five new oil paintings at the gallery’s original Chelsea location at 534 W 21st Street.

Over the past few years, Stingel has taken photographs of his abstract paintings hanging on the walls of his studio, and then painted those images to scale.

Rudolf Stingel, over the course of his four-decade career, has continued to experiment with painting as both medium and subject, consciously positioning it as a metaphor through which to probe the perceptions of image and the conventional boundaries of what constitutes art. Throughout, photorealism has endured as an integral part of his painting oeuvre, combining his inherently process based and conceptually rigorous approach. Stingel employs a scrupulous and exacting method to meticulously recreate an image, generating a self-reflexive image of an image. Through this objective process Stingel establishes authorial distancing, destabilizing the presupposed expectations of authenticity and facsimile, context and origin, and in so doing subversively invokes a renewed encounter of the image.

This show marks thirty years since Stingel first exhibited with Paula Cooper Gallery, at 155 Wooster Street in 1992.

Rudolf Stingel has had one-person exhibitions at the Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel (2019); Palazzo Grassi, Venice (2013); Secession, Vienna (2012); LIVE at the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin (2010); and a major retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2007). Other significant one-person exhibitions include those at the Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (2004) and the Museo d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Trento (2001). Stingel’s work was included in the 2003, 1999, and 1993 Venice Biennales. Work by Stingel is currently on display at the Bourse de Commerce, Pinault Collection in Paris, through January 9, 2023.
