The Frankfurt artist Rolf Poellet is known for his works that consist of a large number of identical sheets. Never printed, but hand-painted, gives the work its special effect. It is not an absolutely congruent repetition of the image on the next sheet, but an escape from repetition loops.

For Studio West, Rolf Poellet uses an expansive working method: his work fills almost the entire wall surface of the exhibition space. While the first panel is the starting point, the second is shifted to the first in order to then assign specific colors to the resulting surfaces. After the painting process is completed, the panels are rearranged. As in many previous works, the artist uses muted colors such as gray and blue tones.

Rolf Poellet (*1962 in Pappenheim) studied from 1995-2001 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, where he held a teaching position for painting and drawing from 2004-2005. From 2012 to 2016 he taught painting at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main.
