Josef Felix Mueller has been grappling with the question of human nature ever since the beginnings of his career as an artist. At the start, not only painting but also drawing, sculpture and printed graphics were the means to express the “states of human beings, which often converge into ritualised images”. However, since the turn of the millennium, the artist has concentrated mainly on “the painterly reconstruction of nature” (cit. “Der uebergeordnete Koerper” [The Superordinate Body], Josef Felix Mueller, Sept. 2007). “Josef Felix Mueller’s painting was always representational; in recent years, it has developed increasingly in the direction of naturalism, a term employed by art criticism with some equivocation, but, owing to the alarming ecological situation, is once more being loaded with new significance and meanings.
