WILHELM NEUSSER

Neusser was born in Cologne, Germany. He studied at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe and his work has been widely exhibited. Recent honors include an Artist Research Trust (A.R.T.) Fellowship, 2015 and a funded residency at the Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT, 2015. Neusser lives and works in Cambridge, MA.Neusser’s most recent landscapes oscillate between idyll and disaster, forcing the viewer to reflect on the relationship between reality and fiction. Central to his investigation is the balance between content and form. His works on paper are hybrids combining different technical strategies, including transfer drawing, monoprint, and silkscreen. The setup is intentionally low tech. Aiming for the beauty in imperfection, his aesthetic playfully questions notions of craftsmanship.
