"Out of the click of a photographer and in months of work as a painter I create a multi-layered time-picture."

Since around 2000, Josef Felix Müller has devoted himself to a minutely detailed form of painting, a radical break with the expressionist figurative style which established the Swiss artist on the international scene in the early 1980s. Archaic, crudely treated wooden sculptures with offensive sexual content manifested his commitment to the subject, to impulsive, intuitive expression. The break with the avant-garde sculpture of the time - land art, post-minimalism and performative tendencies within the sculptural dimension, with Beuys at the vanguard - could not have been more drastic and anachronistic - back to the Wilden and pre-modernists. Georg Baselitz's wooden sculptures are his closest prominent kin.
