Lot description
In 'Untitled (Tim #004, 01/09)', Christian Schoeler captures an intimate moment as he narrows in on his reclining subject. Fully clothed yet exposed, Schoeler's model seems to float in a lushly painted interior. Schoeler’s rendering speaks to ideas of beauty, desire, loss, and innocence.

Known for his delicate portrayals of his youth, German painter Christian Schoeler (b.1979) provides a beautiful and vulnerable approach to the subject of masculinity. Schoeler graduated from the University of Essen, Germany in 2003 and went on to study under Günther Förg at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, Germany. Shortly after completing his studies in 2007, he collaborated with Louis Vuitton designer Paul Helbers on painted canvas suit for Esquire Magazine’s Singular Suit Project in 2009 and on a series of hand-painted leather bags for Vuitton’s 2010/2011 men’s wear collection. His work has gained international acclaim and has been featured in major exhibitions worldwide. Recently, Schoeler’s work was the subject of solo shows at Galerie Urs Meile, Beijing, China (2011); Schuebbe Projects, Dusseldorf, Germany (2010); Galerie Helene Lamargue, Paris, France (2009); and The Dazed Gallery, London, UK (2009).
