20130923130056-090rep Primary Forms with a Bold Function  
by
Eva Fidjeland, Jane Walker at Galerie Stexwig September 15th, 2013 - October 27th, 2013
Posted 9/23/13

I like the slight melancholy mystery of these images. In general, the softened color palette and contrast evokes a faded memory, but the primary forms have a bold function. `Evolution´ employs a primordial form, spiraling up out of the water like a mythic sea creature. I also see the faintly grainy quality and washed out magenta tonality as harkening back to old photographic documentary film, though I`m unsure of the media/process employed here. I find the vertical orientation is also unexpected fo... [more]

Sabine Dehnels ungewöhnliche Frauenporträts in der LSD Galerie. An der Decke hängt eine Stoffbahn voller gehäkelter Spitzendeckchen. In der Mitte der Galerie steht eine Tischvitrine aus einem Miedergeschäft der 70er Jahre, in der ein Häkelbustier in Szene gesetzt ist. An den Wänden hängen Bilder mit Dekolletés und nackten Busen. „Drop The Thought“ heißt Sabine Dehnels Ausstellung in der LSD Galerie – eine Quintessenz der Serie „Mona I-XII“, mit der die Künstlerin seit 2010 in inszenierter F...

Posted 6/22/13

http://www.berlinartlink.com/2013/05/29/layers-upon-layers-the-inner-worlds-of-sabine-dehnel/ Sabine Dehnel is crafty. Her practice is born in paint and then shifts into installation, sculpture, and photography. It oscillates between so many mediums that it feels more cinematic than artistic. A single painting is realized and then used as the basis for an installation which is then hand preened, cut and formed from textiles, paper, industrial supplies, and a complete tailor’s kit of materials. Th... [more]

Guido Canziani Jona at Galerie Mario Mazzoli 3/23/13 Posted 3/23/13

Galerie Mario Mazzoli is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of Guido Canziani Jona in Berlin titled "A synthesis. Emerging as one." The main focus in the work of Canziani Jona is the merging of sound, painting and video into one central work, with the idea of vitalizing the static one of his main concerns. For this, Canziani Jona finds an artistic form of expression in the invariably stronger interconnection of video, painting and sound. The process of fusion is not concealed with Ca... [more]

(Image: Ilse Schreiber-Noll, Oil Spill: Elegy to the Sea,  2013, mixed media on canvas, 60" x 36"; © Ilse Schreiber-Noll)   Ilse Schreiber-Noll (b. Germany) My books, paintings, woodcuts and installations are diaries and visual documents of history. They speak of the tragedy of war and the threat of ecological disasters. The heavy encrusted surfaces of my painted work contain residues of nature, such as sand, ashes, plants and objects. With this I attempt to generate a strong sense of physical... [more]

[Image: John Kleckner, Selbstzerstörung, 2011, Mixed Media Collage - Ink, spray paint on found paper, 102 x 74 cm; © Peres Projects (Mitte)] John Kleckner (b. 1978, Iowa, US) In his work, Kleckner creates a mix of intricately detailed and abstract drawings using ink and watercolor. He has also recently begun producing collages in which he combines drawings and cut-out details from the pages of art history, comic and horror genre books, resulting in the ironic overlaying of historical and co...

(Image: Chloe Piene, Iron Hand,  2012, Installation view,  Iron, Plaster,  40 x 69 x 170cm; © Galerie Barbara Thumm / Photo: Jens Ziehe) Chloe Piene (b. 1972, Stamford, Connecticut, USA) Chloe Piene is well known for her ability to straddle an extremely wide spectrum, both in the physical play of her materials and as a certain philosophical position. Her work has included such diverse associations as prisoners, love letters, ironworkers, Christian mystics, ruins, political dictatorships and... [more]

(Image: Gitte Schäfer, Gabor, 2010, Wood, book cloth, h: 38 x w: 45 x d: 8 cm; © Lullin + Ferrari) Gitte Schäfer (b. 1972, Stuttgart, Germany) History and memory weave a tremulous path through the varied artistic practices of Schäfer, including sculpture, painting, drawing, and design. Working skillfully in these mediums, Schäfer reinterprets several historical sources as far-reaching as German Romanticism, mid-century European industrial design and the Japanese tradition of Ichiban sculptur...

(Image: Björn Dahlem, Schwarzes Loch, 2009, New wool, linen, 180 x 220 cm; © Galerie Guido W. Baudach) Björn Dahlem (b. 1974, Munich, Germany) The artist Björn Dahlem represents the modern type of sculptor. His sculptural creations are rooted not in stability but in what is fragile—for fragility, Dahlem believes, is the defining condition of human knowledge. Profoundly knowledgeable about intellectual and cultural history (including the history of popular culture), Dahlem transposes complex iss... [more]

The artwork is thoughtfully put together and works well within the space.  There's a lot in the show without over crowding.  It's also fun to see how he displays the theme of doubles and triples. [more]

by
Frauke Boggasch + Adrian Lohmüller at Cruise & Callas September 23rd, 2009 - November 7th, 2009
Posted 10/22/10

The pictures of Frauke Boggasch, painted in many glazed layers and sombrely romantic appearing, are conceptual and above all a confrontation with classic questions on painting. In the glazes she buries the knowledge of painting’s conditions. Archetypes, confrontations and allusions are hardly or not at all visible anymore. These layers and histories face up against the completed picture, which on the surface display impasto application and appear almost manically worked. Boggasch employs this mania... [more]

by
Michael Stokes at STYX Projects September 8th, 2010 - September 29th, 2010
Posted 9/11/10

Stokes seems to have the creative freedom that may have other artists, serving more commercial or intellectual masters, becoming anxious. It seems like Stokes just makes whatever he feels like, or works with whatever the sea provides, as it were. It's as though a fisherman waits patiently to see what might bite. But surely this reading is too simple. A reading of this body of work involves a certain amount of time, for there are no dry references to art history or to art theory. Stokes also do... [more]

(Excerpt from 'Ellen Harvey' posted on Whitney Biennial 2008. Found on http://whitney.org/www/2008biennial/www/?section=artists&page=artist_harvey) Watch Harvey guide us through her work in this short Whitney-sponsored video. An artist with a keen sense of both art’s potential and its limitations, Ellen Harvey was trained not only as a painter but also as an attorney, and fittingly her work balances an auteur’s faith with a lawyer’s skepticism. From her works for public spaces to her gallery-based practice, Harvey’s be... [more]
