AR Penck (1939 - 2017)
AR Penck (born 5 October 1939 in Dresden, † 2 May 2017 in Zurich), actually Ralf Winkler (pseudonyms were Tancred Mitschel, Mike Hammer, TM, Mickey Spilane, Theodor Marx, aY or Y) was a German painter, graphic artist, sculptor and jazz musician.
Penck is also considered the father of the "Neue Wilden", a movement of the early 1980s with an ironic and provocative aesthetic. In one of his first paintings from 1955, entitled "Torture", Penck already depicted a naked man lying on a kind of springbok. Several men around him torment him.
When photography and video stirred up art in the mid-1980s, Penck made wooden sculptures. The respected artist-nomad was never only fixated on painting anyway. He wrote theoretical texts, poems with a lot of wit and essays. His secret love was music. Penck played the piano and guitar and was a jazz musician.
His last works - colourful abstract paintings in red, black and white - were created in Dublin. Penck had moved there because of his love of jazz. Penck's last works resemble a wild, joyful score and reflect his passion for music, especially free jazz and jazz rock. They express the mood of the soul of an artist who was more at peace with himself and the world.
