Henning Bohl produces offhandedly elegant objects that play with their status as art. His colorful paintings, accomplished installations, and sculptures act as three-dimensional metaphors of art design, everyday objects, or furniture. Bohl studied at the Städelschule Frankfurt am Main and the Kunsthochschule (Kassel) and has participated in many group exhibitions in Europe and the United States, including at the Seattle Art Museum (2011) and White Columns (New York, 2009). His work has been the subject of recent solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Nürnberg (2013) and the Berlinische Galerie, Berlin (2013).
