About Henning Bohl

Berlin-based artist Henning Bohl’s work is an investigation of the language and structure of painting. He often pushes his vividly hued paintings into the realm of sculpture through collaging curled paper onto canvas or utilizing canvas supports in unconventional ways. Increasingly, the artist has been incorporating common consumer objects into his works by physically attaching them to the surface of his paintings as inquiries into how painting and sculpture can relate to everyday objects.

Bohl attended Kunsthochschule Kassel, Germany, from 1997 to 2000, and Städelschule Frankfurt am Main in Frankfurt, Germany, from 2000 to 2004. He has had solo exhibitions at Cubitt, London (2010); Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden, Germany (2009); Oldenburger Kunstverein, Germany (2008); Galerie Johann König, Berlin, Germany (2008);Casey Kaplan, New York, New York (2007); and Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf, Germany (2005). His work has been included in group exhibitions, including Black Hole, CCA Andratx, Malorca, Spain (2009); Egypted, Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna, Austria (2008); and Street: Behind the Cliché, Witte de With, Rotterdam, The Netherlands (2006).
