Markus Winter Gallery is proud to announce the exhibition and collaborative work of three American artists: Robert Davis and Michael Langlois with Rashid Johnson. The Chicago collaborative duo, Davis/Langlois, have invited Rashid Johnson of New York to participate in their most recent work, Look Into The Rays Of The New Solar Sun Rising.

The exhibition is an overwhelming sensory interplay between sculpture, painting and installation. Through references as disparate as Led Zeppelin, Max Klinger, Leroi Jones, Henry David Thoreau, and the failed utopian movement of the 60’s and 70’s, the artists have created a dynamic environment, oscillating between reality and the surreal, sanity and a psychedelic state of mind.

Davis (b. 1970) and Langlois (b. 1974) met in 1997 at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and have worked together ever since. Their multi-layered pieces aim to challenge the viewer and remove the ego of the artist from the work itself. Their works uses sub-cultural imagery, moral ambiguity, and tension between surface beauty and the darkness that lies beneath.

Rashid Johnson (b. 1977) also studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Johnson’s art focuses on the cultural dialog of racial identities. He is known for his fearless and ironic reworking of stereotypes and icons.

Davis/Langlois and Johnson have previously shown together at Liste, The young art fair in Basel, Switzerland; ChangingRole and Galerie404, Naples, Italy; DCKT Gallery New York, Monique Meloche Gallery and with the Museum Of Contemporary Art Chicago.

Located in former East Berlin, Germany, Galerie Markus Winter was founded in October 2005.

The gallery focuses on international contemporary painting, sculpture, photography and video art with a keen interest in conceptualism and progressive media. Therefore, the exhibition space is designed to accommodate each artist’s project without compromise (allowing for the flexible alteration of the overall architectural structure), and hence provides each artist with a highly individual forum. The yearly gallery program consists of eight to ten exhibitions, including solo exhibitions, as well as curated group shows.

Since our first exhibition, which featured an installation by the acclaimed German video artist Marion Schebesta, we have supported progressive young and mid-career artists from Europe, Asia, and the United States, working in all media. These include: François Boué, Jean-Baptiste Bouvier, Jim Lee, Bryan Osburn and Matthew Abbott.

In addition, we represent members of the Düsseldorf-based artist collective "Konsortium", such as Lars Breuer, Julio Ernesto Herrera Flores and Deutsche Bank award recipient Sven-Ole Frahm.

Jim Lee - easy is hard
Everyday life objects that are familiar to the viewer compose Jim Lee’s sculptures, paintings and installations. As they give off the aura of “the found”, they inspire connotations linked to Arte Povera. Their basic structure is preserved, but is getting recomposed in a certain manner. Those workings could be reduced to fundamental terms as Colour, Form, Line and Shape but this statement would not cope with the sublime play of
