After his last solo show at Strychnin Gallery Berlin in November 2008, American artist David Hochbaum is now back with new works – this time going back to his roots in the darkroom. Presenting mostly black and white works based on photographs, Hochbaum’s preoccupation with houses, labyrinthine streets and cityscapes is brought to a new level in these carefully layered works. This is the start of a busy month for David Hochbaum, as he will also be showing work at Art Fair 21 in Cologne, “Apocalypse Wow!” at the MACRO in Rome, and the huge “Magistrates” show at Strychnin in November!
