Anselm Kiefer!

German painter Anselm Kiefer creates stark, inhospitable environments by employing heavily textured application of paint as well as the incorporation of alternative materials onto the canvas itself. Utilizing mediums such as emulsion, tar, wood and straw, Kiefer depicts scenes of scorched earth; landscapes that have undergone some form of traumatic apocalypse. The imagery is strikingly similar to that described by McCarthy in his novel, The Road.
