view of the studio, 2009

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 material and message.
The artist wants to establish the relation between art and contemplator not exclusively on an abstract intellectual level, but tries to give a more palpable experience of his work.

The works of the US-American are exhibited from September 5th until October 31th 2009 at Gallery Markus Winter Berlin.

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.

Maki Umehara at Markus Winter

Markus Winter presents the works of Alter Carnol and Andreas Korte in Berlin
Markus Winter is proud to present the works of Alter Carnol and Andreas Korte. The two artists analyze the notion of space perception, asking basic questions about its limits and margins, examinig art’s boundaries and surpassing them at the same time.

Group show ‘Local Paintings’ at Markus Winter in Berlin
‘Local Paintings’ is questioning the concept of the ‘international style’ in modernist art. Apart from being often associated with an individual relationship to the artwork or the focus on personal expression, the title evokes a connection between the painting and the world outside the gallery/studio walls, a relationship repressed by modernist art theory. The show confronts the work of four painters, of different nationalities, with different educational, professional and social backgrounds
