In this special work you can already recognize an approach of his later tree paintings which he is very famous for.
During the 1980s he began combining abstract and figurative elements of painting in his works, as part of a reaction to the prevailing Neo - Expressionist aesthetic of the time.
Influenced by other German painters such as Georg Baselitz, Sigmar Polke and Gerhard Richter, Oehlen focuses on the process of painting itself.
