Season’s greatings

Dear Madam, dear Sir, dear friends,

we would like to thank our gallery friends, our online visitors and our faithful clients who have all supported us throughout this difficult year.

Despite the pandemic, we particated at two art fairs: the paper positions in Berlin and in Munich. Thank you very much for visiting us there.

We were able to exhibit most of our artists at our gallery in Munich: the works on paper by Fritz Sauter; Franz Lazi’s wonderful photographs from Italy, Switzerland and England; Lukas Weiß’s impressive show of contemporary woodcuts, as well as woodcuts of the 20ies by Conrad Felixmüller, Erich Heckel et al.
Lukas Weiß.  „Verbindung“ Material print with wooden plates. 130 x 190 cm . Edition 1 / 1.

We opened our autumn show with Peter Neusser’s marvellous alpine and urban multiple exposures. Thereafter we exhibited the focused landscape paintings by Lena Keller.

Peter Neusser. Laliderer Waende. (Tyrolia). Pigment Print, 2018. 122 x 87 cm.                                                                                                                           lk
            Lena Keller.  untitled. 2020. oil on canvas (vessel)  140 x 120 cm.

In January 2021 we plan the opening of the show „fotogenetic codes“ by Adi Hoesle – due to the current circumstances also via Zoom.
In his recent series ‚fotogenic codes‘ Hoesle transfers and deconstructs digitalized artworks in their binary code. He does shy away from historical art icons, as for example Michelangelo Buonarroti (Michelangelo „The last supper“, “ 2020,  100 x 180 cm, Colour Print, Diasec, Edition of 3 + 1 AP).

We very much hope that we will be able to return to regular exhibitions without restrictions in 2021, and participate at art fairs again regularly. We miss seeing you all in person!

With best wishes for the holiday season and for a healthy New Year !
