Current Exhibtion: Zoppes imagery  (Paintings & Sculptures)

16th Sept. till 18 th November 2018

 

For the first time we present Zoppe Voskuhl in a solo exhibition with works on canvas and sculptures, which were created over a longer period, from 1994 to 2018. In addition to his well-known Rüdi images that look funny, sad, colorful and childlike, we find impressive brown pictures, portraits, etc. by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, but also his so-called "beautiful pictures / direct pictures", which, as he writes, can be direct, but in any case are beautiful.All in all, a wonderful potpourri of life awaits us at the highest level of painting Thanks dear Zoppe!

"Imaginative and mysterious pictorial worlds are created in a colorful, multi-faceted, often colorfully colored painting, with goblin-like figures portraying often interwoven picture stories or sneaking on the stage alone to present their own truths." The great world theater becomes burlesque, sometimes humorous, sometimes bitter narrations Then little knives flash in the hands of harmless-looking little girls, diabolical figurines dislocate themselves in postures that cause discomfort to the viewer.They are played, eaten, drunk and loved.The works systematize stereotypes of good in both good and bad and evil and unfold the whole panorama of the condition humain in all its terrible beauty. "

From 3:00 - 7:00 pm - Exhibition Opening:

Eberhard Schlotter - Jutta Schölzel  (Paintings & Sculptures)

 

 

On Sunday, November 25, 2018, from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm, the Galerie Friendly Society will be opening its 81st theme exhibition "Eberhard Schlotter & Jutta Schölzel", to which we cordially invite you and your friends. Works on canvas/cardboard by Eberhard Schlotter († 2014) and sculptures by Jutta Schölzel will be presented. We would be happy to welcome you with pastries and winter punch.

Hier findet Ihr eine Auswahl der ausgestellten Werke.

 

 

Eberhard Schlotter (1921-2014) is one of the most important representatives of German art after 1950. The internationally recognized painter and graphic artist lived and worked in Spain and Germany. Both large monographic exhibitions and various awards honored his work to this day. The Eberhard Schlotter foundation in the Bomann-Museum Celle has about 700 paintings and watercolors as well as about 5,000 graphics from all phases of the artist's work and shows in changing exhibitions his impressively large and multifaceted work.

Jutta Schözel was born in Wismar in 1954 and studied plastic art at the Berlin-Weissensee Art College from 1982-1985. She lives and works in Berlin-Friedrichshagen. The main theme of her figurative works is human: heads, torsos, standing single figures, groups of two. The intense preoccupation with the human being describes it as an exciting basic experience: the awakening of the bodily sensation, feeling, the awareness of physical being and behavior.

 

8:00 - 9:00 pm - SunnySundaySalon: Carmen Underwater 

 

Dramatic, dynamic and emotional - her voice gets under your skin and hits the heart. Carmen Underwater casts a spell over her listeners in a charming way and awards one music prize after another, among others. the Listen To Berlin Award and the jury prize of the Berlin Song Contest. True to the motto "everything is possible" touring the sympathetic songwriter from Rothenburg / Tauber with husband and child recently across Europe, New Zealand and Australia. She sings and talks about her experiences and is often referred to as the German Kate Bush. Rather, it's a mix of pop, soul and femininity, of strength and vulnerability that she radiates with every breath.

ANDREY KEZZYN - Photography - St.Petersburg/Berlin


In our basement salon we present our "PopUp Winter Photo Exhibition" of the photographer living in St. Petersburg and Berlin Andrey Kezzyn.

Andrej Kezzyn, also known as Kezzyn Waits, has been involved in photography for over ten years. For the past five years he has focused on the posed, theatricalized photo where the models become actors and take on a specific role. The recording area becomes a stage where new stories are told. The photographer appears as a director and only he alone decides which dramatic moments of the subject are worth staying on the film or on the memory card of the camera.

The works of Kezzyn are like shots from films that have never been shot or paintings that are never painted. Ironic, emotional, provocative and lively works of art turn to the spectator, who not only remains an observer, but becomes a participant in this theatrical performance, which unfolds before his eyes. The spectator's job is not just to look. His role is to look into it, to think, to experience a long story with humorous and tragic moments together with the protagonists. This secondary part of the story the photographer shared with him.

Art Works - Hans-Joachim Billib 

 

 

Hans-Joachim Billib is a master student of professor Klaus Fussmann. He encounters his environment detached and impartially. His interest is the visible reality. Technically brilliant, almost old masterly, he captures his surroundings in oil. Despite the constantly changing light, the alteration of colour and shadows, he suggest a moment of tranquillity, a section to stop. The intensity, the observation and the exactness of the painting lend the seen landscape a not rarely seen since of surreality.

Framing - Silver or Gold Plated, Wood, Aluminium, Shadow-Joint, Mount-Board, Museum-Glass (Non-reflecting clear glass)

Valuable art, be it an engraving, cut, etching, photo, or individual painting, should be framed in a way that even after many years it still looks as if it has just been framed.

Heads - Portraits - Inge H.Schmidt

 

 

Inge H. Schmidt is a master student of Professor Karl Oppermann (UdK). She is well known outside Germany, and stands out especially through her technical and formal versed drawings and paintings in watercolours. Many of the very strong emotional works have an almost mystical-magical charisma that draws the observer completely into a special spell. Not lastly it is the highly individual colours that fascinate. The lines and coloured areas are so masterly placed that the borders from representational and abstraction seemingly dissolve itself. However the longer one observes the work the formal meaning and substance again become visible. Her main theme is the figure of man in his existential feelings and in his uniqueness.
