Neo Rauch

When I interviewed Marion Peck a while ago she had mentioned being influenced by a German painter named Neo Rauch. I sort of took note, had a vague idea of his work, and basically forgot about it. Today I was at the Frye Art Museum and picked up a catalog of his work. I have to say it doesn't hit me personally in the gut like other work does, but it's clearly "important" and intriguing.
