A Question of Perception
Andreas Horn’s New Collection
artexpo New York 2016
by Dr. Barbara Aust-Wegemund, Art Historian
Andreas Horn, “Views of Being”, 2016
Acrylic on Canvas, 20 x 20 cm (7,8 x 7,8 inches)
Situated on the most highly visible location in NYC, Pier 94, artexpo New York announces its return, featuring three shows at one venue, a presentation of contemporary art, photo show and solo show. With an emphasis on activating emerging galleries and artists, attendees to artexpo New York are seasoned collectors, curators and tastemakers looking for new discovery.
The art fair opens on Thursday, April 14, to welcome VIPs and Press at its First View benefit, and runs from April 14 to 17, 2016. Those, looking for something exciting at artexpo New York but also meditativeness cannot ignore the new series “Inner Structures” of Andreas Horn.
Andreas Horn, “Ways of Life X”, 2015
Acrylic on Board, 20 x 20 cm (7,8 x 7,8 inches)
The German artist, born in Bremen in 1969, presented by Kerstan Gallery at booth 103, is delighted to be selected for the show in NYC. Horn’s sublime lyrical abstractions reflect a hybrid language where virulent lines meet colour fields, a playful, but also complex and multilayer transformation to discover the imagination of the mind and universe, an inner journey to the own emotional world.
Among his countless exhibitions worldwide, his works were showcased at InArte Werkkunst Gallery, Berlin (2016), Alfred Gallery, Tel Aviv (2015), Cologne Paper Art, Cologne (2014), United Nations Headquarter, NYC (2013), Tampa Museum of Art, Tampa, FL (2013), New Millenium Center for Contemporary Art, Changsha, China (2013), Nomadic Academy of Experimental Arts, Helsinki (2012), Museum Weserburg, Museum for Modern Art, Bremen (2011) and the alternative art space d52, Raum für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Düsseldorf (2010).
Andreas Horn, “Dreaming beyond Reality”, 2016
Acrylic on Canvas, 60 x 90 cm (23,6 x 35,4 inches)
Andreas Horn was awarded with the d52 Award in Düsseldorf (2010, 2013) and the 2nd Artprize of Waltrop, Germany. The artist, who is also curator at the non-profit art festival Kap-Hoorn ART Bremen, lives and works in Bremen, Germany.
Close to his aesthetic approach, there is a precision in his brand new series, which reflects the deep essence of his work. Like a scientist he is thinking about the exact proportions and measurements of the formal idea, which he is transforming into new manifestations. Every aspect of the composition is important, the choice of the material, the look of the surface.
Andreas Horn’s technical aspects of the acrylic compositions are directed toward an intuitive working process and sensory meaning that becomes a metaphor of existence in time and space.
