Anselm Kiefer is a tireless omnivore with endless interests. The artist is always looking for new insights and meanings. And you can see this clearly in his layered work. In it he weaves together Germanic mythology, history, poetry, literature and philosophy. He uses traditional and unconventional materials, such as gold, oil paint, straw and lead. Kiefer exposes his works to the elements, sets them on fire, adds life-size objects or chisels away previously applied layers. In this way he creates true symphonies full of texture and meaning, which he prefers to continue working on. Because for him a work of art is never truly finished.
