About

This beautiful three color silkscreen print shows a view of Los Angeles from the Griffith Observatory, as rendered by renowned artist, printmaker, and author Christoph Niemann. In November 2017, artist Christoph Niemann flew from Berlin to Los Angeles at the invitation of his Zurich publisher, Philipp Keel, under the auspices of meeting David Hockney. Anybody who knows the first thing about Christoph Niemann (from his nearly 30 New Yorker covers, museum exhibitions including at the Met Museum, Netflix documentary "Abstract: the Art of Design," his best selling artbooks, “Abstract Sunday” his New York Times blog and Instagram account, TED Talk, apps or any of the many other ways he manifests as a contemporary visual voice) knows that under his scrutiny, even the most mundane task can turn into something altogether peculiar, altogether special, as if to say everything can be enlightening. His epic road trip simply within the city of Los Angeles itself while waiting for the rarified opportunity of spending time with a contemporary giant like Hockney led to a body of work including this silkscreen edition, and a meditation on the meaning of “Hopes and Dreams,” captured in the accompanying publication of the same name. Niemann is a master of capturing the essence of a place within his distinctive style, and he nails L.A. despite only the slightest glimpse of its landmarks. Pondering “big dreams and long odds for happy endings,” Niemann brings his sharp focus not on the glitz, but the quotidian inherent in every phase of life. And his own journey highlights how travel physically not only transports one from home but allows one to mentally enter a parallel universe, imagine a path not taken.
