Anselm Reyle seems to be back at work after a two-year break that many saw as a response to the artist’s over-production from a factory-sized studio.
Now the German magazine Monopol has a brief story on the artist just as his works have been selling modestly during the Frieze auctions. But they sold. And when one looks back at recent sales history, we discover a steady market for the foil works. This version owned by Frederic Brandt made a solid £62,500 which is a far cry from his market peak but still a ways off of oblivion.
Phillips also sold a sculpture and a stripe painting for mid-to-high five-figure sums. Here’s Monopol (in Google translation) on Reyle now:

I was lucky that I was able to produce a fairly wide work, “the artist said after his talk in an interview with monopoly. And is his studio, where he formerly employed many assistants, not a little too big for him alone? “At the moment I’m enjoying the peace and begin to develop new work. Every now and then someone will help me in converting new ideas.”
