Josef Felix Müller- Feuer-Samen-Pflanzen

Since around 2000, Josef Felix Müller has devoted himself to a minutely detailed form of painting - a radical break with the expressionist figurative style which established the Swiss artist on the international scene in the early 1980s. Archaic, crudely treated wooden sculptures with offensive sexual content manifested his commitment to the subject, to impulsive, intuitive expression. The break with the avant-garde sculpture of the time #x2013 land art, post-minimalism and performative tendencies within the sculptural dimension, with Beuys at the vanguard #x2013 could not have been more drastic and anachronistic #x2013 back to the Wilden and pre-modernists. Georg Baselitz#x2019s wooden sculptures are his closest prominent kin.
Müller has now abandoned the crudely formed figural image and applied himself to a documentary, objective rendering of reality: mostly outside spaces in nature. With his digital camera in his hand he combs through the countryside, takes close-ups of streams, thickets in the forest, also bird#x2019s-eye view photos of mountain panoramas.
These sources are then transferred in minute detail to the canvas.
