Darkness Goldness

White Cube Mason's Yard

Since the beginning of his career, Georg Baselitz has painted ‘monstrous’ hands and feet. His famous ‘Heroes’ series of the mid-1960s, for example, showed battered figures with over- or undersize extremities standing in blasted landscapes. Their hands bear stigmata or hold tiny burning buildings or farm implements – symbols, perhaps, of the cycles of destruction and regeneration in 20th-century Germany.
