Albert Oehlen

Albert has a new show up at Serpentine that’s an interpretation of the Rothko Chapel. The gallery says “Albert understand the strategies of surrealism as a kind of toolbox.” Though not strictly abstraction, I think of the automatism of the surrealists as a necessary precursor to fully non-objective painting (e.g., without Gorky, there is no Lee Krasner)
