Interview with Petra Scheibe Teplitz
Shortly before the artist Petra Scheibe Teplitz installs project #2 at the new DavisKlemmGallery project space in Hochheim am Main, we are publishing this interview that gives some insight into her "sausage production". (the interview in German can be found below as a pdf file.)
Project #2 by Petra Scheibe Teplitz can be seen from September 4th till October 31st, 2021. The installations in the project space are conceived by the artists to be viewed through the window - and are thus visible 24/7.
Konrad Winter in Worpswede
Works by Konrad Winter will be on view in the Neuer Worpsweder Kunstverein under the ambiguous title “End of the performance”. On display are paintings that play with the “imaginable”. His technique of digitally reducing photos into light impressions and transferring them to aluminum with a brush and car paint shows different levels of meaning.
“Tilting one image information into another poses the question of image content and perception and thus examining the structure,” he describes his approach to nwwk. “The original motif can only be seen from a greater distance. The digital character alludes to our experience with internet, a huge and permanently available image memory that has had a lasting impact on image reception. We are also familiar with digital imaging processes in science. Several levels of information are combined in one image that only appears to depict a situation, a snapshot. "
His new works for the exhibition reflect a calm retreat that was already recognizable in his recent paintings. Under the perspective of the forced withdrawal caused by the pandemic, they gain a new presence.
"Eat me!": Junge Kunsthalle Karlsruhe
The Junge Kunsthalle Karlsruhe will be showing the exhibition "Eat me! Fruit and vegetables in art" from July 24th till October 31st, 2021. We are pleased to support the museum by lending works by our artists Peter Anton and Günter Beier. The exhibition accompanies the exhibition "Inventing Nature. Plants in art".
Petra Scheibe Teplitz: TOI TOI TOI
Petra Scheibe Teplitz is represented with her sculpture "TOI TOI TOI" ("Good luck") at the 23rd Sculpture Park in Mörfelden-Walldorf. The materials wood, paint, boat varnish, hooks and a lifebuoy sound like the ambience of a North Sea holiday. However, the German artist Petra Scheibe Teplitz creates something different from these materials: a neon-orange, two and a half meter high pillar with a neon-orange lifebuoy at a height that is difficult to reach. It is more of an exclamation point than a beach idyll. The white lettering "TOI TOI TOI" - also the title of the work - covers the entire wood beam.
The lifebuoy as a motif has been used for a long time in the works by Scheibe Teplitz. However, its symbolism changes depending on the development of daily politics. More precisely: what rescue and who is in needed of being rescued.
July 4th - August 29th, 2021 "Sculptures in the park".
New: DavisKlemmGallery Project Space
The DavisKlemmGallery is opening a project space in the Rheingau wine town of Hochheim am Main. Centrally located in the picturesque old town and only four kilometers from the gallery location, the gallery's artists can use the 20 square meter room for installations. The special thing about the new location is the almost full-surface shop window facing the street that allows a complete view of the room.
The first artist making an installation will be Frankfurt artist Albrecht Wild, who has been an artist of the gallery since 2016.
The address of the project space is Kirchstraße 4 in Hochheim am Main.
New gallery artist: Hein Spellmann
After his fascinationg first exhibition at DavisKlemmGallery, the Berlin artist Hein Spellmann is now a permanent fixture in the gallery program. His works combine photography with object art. We look forward to long-term cooperation.
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).
