Opening Reception for Oehlen

Artist: Albert Oehlen
Gallery: John Berggruen

When I introduced myself to Mr. Berggruen, saying I write an art blog about San Francisco artists and openings, he commented, You can refer to this one as quiet. And, I will say he was correct but it made for an easier time to look at the work.

Anyway, I enjoyed Oehlen's paintings. It was fun to discover little hidden pictures throughout, which in other publications have been said as Oehlen's way "to taunt the viewers impulse to identify subject matter."(Art In America, December 2004 by Stephen Maine)
