Georg Herold’s visionary work has spanned an impressive four decades. He has influenced generations of artists from Europe to America.

A student of Sigmar Polke, working contemporaneously with such fellow artists as Albert Oehlen and Martin Kippenberger, Georg Herold is firmly rooted in German sensibility and tradition, yet the body of his work has traversed all boundaries of geography, culture, trend and time, and made him one of the key conceptual artists of our time. He has worked in an impressively wide range of media from sculpture, installation, photography, painting and video, and done so with a singular vision and voice. But most of all Georg Herold, after over forty years of creating an impressive and indelible body of work, is arguably now creating some of the best work of his life.
