The figurative watercolors of Achim Riethmann (b. London, 1979; lives and works in Berlin) are delineated with great precision and exude a powerful aesthetic appeal. Look again, however, and the semblance of perfection is shattered: fragmented and stripped of their context, the motifs appear in isolation before white backdrops. With an essay by Isabelle Meiffert and a conversation between the artist and his former teacher Leiko Ikemura.
