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
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.
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
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
