Neo Rauch combines sci fi imagery with painting satisfying my love of both of these things. Rauch is a contemporary german artist, and part of the leipzig painters. Rauch incorporates heavy symbolism into his paintings that remind me of renaissance painters in the way the positioning of two things has a certain significance or how he includes a seemingly out of place item to represent a specific meaning. His paintings have an out of the past feel that fits well with his vintage sci fi aesthetic. He is yet another painter who uses narrative in his work, which if you haven't figured out yet, I love.
