EXHIBITION: Cf. Tilo Baumgärtel. Hydroplan. Art prize of bank 'Sachsen LB' in 2002, Museum der Bildenden Künste Leipzig, 1 December, 2002 - 9 February, 2003, p. 35 (with illu., other variant).
Galerie LIGA, Berlin.

Tilo Baumgärtel, who was first to receive the prize from the bank 'Sachsen LB' in 2002, is a representative of the New Leipzig School and former student of Neo Rauch. His unmistakable style is characterized by a combination of clear representationalism and a diffuse dissolution of forms. Thus his scenes, real and yet fantastic, are reminiscent of dream-like comatose states. At times nightmarish, his pictures emanate an absurd and ironic energy through their idiosyncratic transformation of reality. [DB]
