Approximately 60 paintings and an interview with the artist.
From the publisher:
I Was a Child is the first full-scale exhibition of Helnwein's work in New York and represents the next generation of some of the artist's classic themes and subjects. The exhibition includes The Disasters of War, Murmur of the Innocents, Epiphany and Midnight Mickey as well as an entirely new series devoted to his iconic Sleep series.
The artist Gottfried Helnwein (born 1948) has been known for decades as a master of provocation and technique in the visual and performing arts. While his early works were drawn from the horrors witnessed by his own generation, as well as his youth in post-World War II Austria, Helnwein's more recent paintings present more hallucinatory images of reverie, combining powerful gestures of light and shadow with depictions of the aftermath of violence, brutality and suffering.
