Olaf Breuning’s diverse body of work is united by his distinctive sense of humour. His drawings, photographs, videos, and sculptures utilise a deliberately simple visual vocabulary to address a variety of human concerns. Combining this colourful and deceptively wide-eyed visual style with cultural symbols and archetypes, Breuning’s work comments on many of the most poignant and urgent facets of human experience. Humour and innocence work to disarm everyday distractions that obscure profoundexistential concerns, as well as mundane truths. Yet Breuning’s work is never a reduction or simplification. Rather, his work crystalises particular themes and situations, allowing viewers to reflect on both the diversity of human experience and the commonalities we all share.
