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

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

Sven-Ole Frahm and Alexander Knych at ART COLOGNE

Markus Winter, hall 4.1, booth D 61 Sven-Ole Frahm “The ‚cut and paste’ of the canvas marks the initial, definitive step in the paintings made in rather spontaneous movements of dripping and pouring. In confrontation with a parallel developed structure the process of painting does not derive from it.” Heike van den Valentyn Alexander Knych “The lamp measures the distance to the light, it throws a shadow and produces darkness with the distance. The
