Michael Luther, Gallery "1", oil on canvas, 2008

Michael Luther’s painterly world is that of the minutely intimate. The main sources for his pictures are found in his most immediate surroundings such as his studio, or even more in extreme close-up, the actual source for making pictures, namely the paints and art materials themselves.
For WILDE Gallery, Luther has created a series of paintings depicting the very spaces in which they are to be shown. These are paintings that literally feed upon themselves in a birth-life cycle, that expose their content as a mirror image of the hyper real.
Michael Luther’s method is meditative rather than conceptual and he approaches the painted picture plane, as would many process-based artists, through contemplation and at times through obsessive compulsion, which in a different age from ours may have been described as transcendental.
“INSIDE” by Michael Luther opens at WILDE Gallery on Saturday, August 30th, 2008 from 19h (7pm). The exhibition opening coincides with the “Lange Nacht der Museen – Berlin” and the gallery will remain open past its normal hours until late.
The exhibition runs from August 30th, 2008 until September 20th, 2008
A catalogue will accompany the exhibition with an introductory essay by Joakim Borda.

OFF THE WALL – From Vandalism to Urban Art
Since its early beginnings as an art form in the 1970’s, Street art, Graffiti – or Urban Art has been considered a transgression. Graffiti writers, who usually were not schooled in classical arts and didn’t adhere to the confines of the classical picture plane and its white cube dwellings became visible through the cracks of a society then desperately trying to re-define itself from the burden of modernity.
