Kings chic in Ahrenshoop again

 

At the "cradle" of sculptor Nando KALLWEIT's artistic career, the striking group of kings has stood in front of THE GARND Hotel in Ahrenshoop for over 10 years. The wind and weather of the Baltic Sea have left their mark over time. The surface of the robust oak sculptures has been given a new color treatment, making them "fresh" again. All the more reason to visit this beautiful place and take a "KALLWEIT" to yourself. Take a look around the store on our homepage - you're sure to find something for you or simply call us with your requirements! We are looking forward to it!

Long Night of Galleries & Museums 2024

 

Experience art in compact form, marvel together, talk about it! We cordially invite you to the LONG NIGHT OF GALLERIES & MUSEUMS in Dresden's Baroque Quarter. The opportunity to take a leisurely stroll through the galleries, meet old and new masters, friends and artists and raise a glass to art.

The FLOX Gallery will be presenting a solo show entitled "Wanderin der Weite" (Wanderer of the Vastness) featuring paintings by JURK k. nina, an artist who was born in Dresden and lives and works in Leipzig. Many new works will be presented, to be seen in public for the first time. And for connoisseurs, it will undoubtedly be visible - a homage to the "art jubilarian" of 2024 - Casper David Friedrich.

And for "connoisseurs" and "newcomers" to the fine arts - don't worry, you don't have to want to understand anything, rather look and let things work on you, be free to make discoveries. We think it's worth it! After a hopefully successful week that is almost over, we look forward to your visit to this popular, relaxed format.

18:00 Start / Guided tours by the gallery team every hour on the hour / End 24:00 !

Kann man Weite malen, ohne einen breiten Horizontstreifen auf ein Querformat zu dehnen? Bei Nina K. Jurk ist Weite ein Zustand, in den man sich hineinbegeben kann, den sie sich auf langen Wegen erwandert. Von unterwegs, aus der Weite heraus, berichtet sie malerisch in unerhörter Farbsprache; realistisch, phantastisch, paradox.

Streifzüge durch die Sächsische Schweiz, eine Alpenüberquerung zu Fuß oder auch nur der gelaufene Weg ins Atelier schenken der Künstlerin Beobachtungen, die zur sinnlichen Manifestation werden: in Ölfarbe auf kleinen bis sehr großen Leinwänden.

Dabei kommt sie völlig ohne das Nacherzählen von Umgebung aus und ohne Indizien zur Verortung der Bilder, denn ihre Weite entsteht, wenn sich die äußere Umgebung mit der inneren Verfassung zu einer Stimmung verbindet. Dafür hat Nina K. Jurk eine einzigartige, radikale malerische Sprachform entwickelt, die die traditionell weite Landschaft in eine vertiefende Raumerfahrung überträgt.

GUSKE antje & GROETSCHEL thorsten (beide DE) – "echo chamber" - object & painting

Gallery FLOX - Obergraben 10 - 01097 Dresden / in the Neustadt baroque quarter

The world in snapshots: With abstract objects and photorealistic images, the two Dresden artists create sensually tangible views of the world.

In the "echo chambee" exhibition, the artist duo are showing their work together for the first time at FLOX: a congenial interplay of form, colour and meaning. On display are large-format objects made of wood, the surface of which Antje Guske works on with acrylics and pastel pigments, and in some cases sculpturally. Thorsten Groetschel is showing works (oil on canvas) from his most recent oeuvre.

There are things that we know that are so commonplace that we hardly notice them consciously: for example, the geometrically arranged roofs of a factory that look like a series of triangles, or the roof covered with old shingles, the high factory chimney with unplastered brickwork that is precisely structured, rivers, sunsets, mountains... All of this is there - but it often escapes our perception.

With her objects, the artist Antje Guske (*1978 in Dresden) creates abstract, modular images of these things and transfers them - in a freely chosen arrangement - into enclosed spaces, such as those of a gallery. In this way, she enables the viewer to enter her world and be completely surrounded by it. A world that can be experienced with all the senses. The artist shows where she focusses her own perception. She draws attention to fine details, to the often overlooked beauty in the everyday. For the viewer, this results in new perspectives on the world and inspiration for other ways of seeing.

lThorsten Groetschel (*1975 in Karlsruhe) also invites the viewer to become a conscious observer of his surroundings with his work. In his photorealistic paintings, he captures the unique moment in the present. There is the view of the play of clouds in the summer sky, the part of a house façade, the former school path, a car parked in front of the house. Nevertheless, Thorsten Groetschel's paintings are not a realistic depiction of reality. What he shows are moments, fragments of memories of his own life and experiences, which are of importance to the artist, quite subjectively, and can also evoke memories and associations in the viewer - albeit different ones. His pictures are emotionally charged by the choice of colours and the skilful interplay of light and shadow. In addition, there are equally poetic and irritating interference fields, such as splashes of colour, which are reminiscent of the artistic process on another level of perception. Typical of the artist's work is the oscillation between close-up and distant effects with very different visual experiences. The close-up view of the images, which appear photorealistic from a distance, reveals exciting relief effects or colour structures.
