Wild at Heart

Paul Pretzer

December 1, 2009 - January 2, 2010



David Castillo Annex is proud to present Paul Pretzer’s first exhibition in the United States.  The artist’s small format oil paintings are dark humored glimpses into his creatures’ predicaments.  The classical composition and colors of the paintings draw the unsuspecting viewer into the fabel-like characters’ fantastical dilemmas.  His paintings create an unsettling easy balance between humor and tragic situations.  By delivering these snippets of a story, Pretzer invites viewers to complete the narrative themselves.


Paul Pretzer was born in Paide, Estonia in 1981 and now lives and works in Dresden, Germany.  He has exhibited throughout Europe and is included in public and private collections around the world, including the Rubell Family Collection in Miami.
