About Andreas Golder's works

Andreas Golder's work is characteristic of the fields of Figuration, Design, Conceptual and Abstraction. Figurative art can merely be understood as art that involves strong references to the real world, or to the human figure. Often thought of as the polar opposite of Abstraction, figurative art can nonetheless remain incredibly stimulating and ground-breaking, since it includes a multitude number of approaches to represent the chosen object or figure. The diversity of style in figurative art is enormous, and spans across Paul Cézanne’s bathers to Jean-Michel Basquiat’s neo-expressionist paintings.

The boundaries between art and design are blurred and can be difficult to define. Also referred to as applied arts, the genre includes different categories such as industrial design, graphic design and fashion design. In the graphic arts, ranging from photography to illustration, it is often the context that will provide a difference between Fine Arts and Applied Arts; such a distinction is most often based on how the work is produced, and how it is traded.

Emerging as an art movement in the 1960s, Conceptualism has sparked a significant amount of controversy and debate, often provoking intense reactions in its audience. Conceptual art by essence implies that the idea behind the actual artwork is more important than the finished product itself. The research and strategies conducted by the artist represent the most important part of the work, conceptual art thus strives to be an art of the mind, instead of appealing to the senses. Although it refers to art from the mid 1960s to the mid 1970s, the origins of Conceptualism can be traced back to 1917, with Marcel Duchamp and his polemical artwork Fontaine, which tried to obliterate the boundaries between art and reality. Conceptual art is not as straightforward as other movements, as it uses an interdisciplinary approach, and the artworks can take the form of anything - from everyday objects to performances requiring audience participation.

Born in the early 20th century, abstract art can be defined as a movement evading the classical definition of art, which succeeded in creating its own tradition through freedom and a new perception of reality. In abstract artworks, the objects are simplified, modified, and hold little to no reference to reality. Abstract art represents a pivotal moment in modernism, and its roots can be traced to Impressionism. With Abstraction, the artists are inclined to explore deep into their emotions, and create completely new and liberated representations of the world, which are inherent to their own perception of it. Wassily Kandinsky, who believed that colours and shapes could be used to represent the artist’s inner turmoil, is often considered as the father of abstract art.

Further Biographical Context for Andreas Golder

Born in 1979, Andreas Golder was primarily influenced by the 1980s. The 1980s were a turbulent period culturally, and were marked by growing global capitalism, global mass media, significant discrepancies in wealth, alongside a distinctive sense of music and fashion, epitomised by electronic pop music and hip hop. Artists growing up during this time were heavily influenced by this cultural culture. The 1980s were a significant decade in terms of politics, marked by the African Famine and the end of the Cold War, which was signified by the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Neo Geo and The Pictures Generation became leading art movements during the decade, alongside Neo-Expressionism which became well-known in Germany, France and Italy (where it was known as Transavanguardia). Artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Jörg Immendorf, Enzo Cucchi, Francesco Clemente and Julian Schnabel were leading artists of the era, alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Kenny Scharf, who established the street art and graffiti movements.
