Virtual tour: Pop:Street:Art with Günter Beier
"Pop and street culture in contemporary art" - artists in Baden-Württemberg have taken a position on this topic for the 2nd Southwest German Art Prize from the Kreissparkasse. From 308 submitted works 37 were chosen by a jury for the exhibition - including the painting "Hosen 3", 2016, oil on canvas, 150 x 100 cm, by our artist Günter Beier.
His painting shows an excerpt from an old Quelle catalogue - a reference to times long past when customers were still turning the pages of printed catalogues. Trousers in different muted colors with matching belts are stacked on top of each other. Beier paints the trousers in oil on canvas in such a way that the polyester material and the artificial leather of the belt can be seen. He replaces the original care instructions with colored rectangles, while he leaves the puzzling information "S" and "U" for the quick orientation of a potential buyer. While Konrad Klapheck devotes his realistic painting to machines, Günter Beier is looking for everyday products that are known from the media or from shopping. He stands in the tradition of Pop Art, which deals with media content and everyday culture (popular culture).
