There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in’  Leonardo Cohen

 

Gils, will be showing his series Transfer is a further development of the sophisticated multi-exposures of the Movement series, which is already known for its spacious and picturesque qualities. In this new extension of the series, the works undergo another transformation. As polaroids they are further transferred onto watercolour paper. Through this technique a particularly atmospheric and dreamy mood arises, which lends a certain abstract expressionistic layer to the images. Upon closer inspection, however, the eye begins to decode that in these works there are real places depicted, all with their special characteristics. In this way, the viewer is left in a state of both presence and the chance to disappear deep into the works. Transfer opens up the idea of landscape photography as a form of portal to a deeper emotional scenery.

Drawings to Lights by Michael Ahlefeldt

Drawings to Lights by Michael Ahlefeldt

Jun  23 – August 4th 2022

Painter and freehand artist with genuine artistic passion and dedication, Michael explores in this series of one-line drawings the power of his subconscious. What at a first glance seems to be abstract compositions, reveals happy, enthusiasm and dynamic scenes where several figures evolve and invite the viewer to join them. The artist is guided by the way he sees the world around him, letting all this positive energy being translated into paper.
Michael’s curiosity on new techniques and fascination with colors and forms lead him to find a way to make his drawings alive and as vibrant as the scenes they represent. Their transformation into light “tableaux” with intense colors allows us to penetrate the artist’s world and join him into the dance.

“Drawings to Lights” demonstrate the artist’s ability to, through curiosity, capture and translate into two very different mediums his own personal space. His technical mastery allows him to simplify the drawing to just show the essential which allows its transformation.

Time is an ocean that ends on the beach’  Bob Dylan

Water is poetry. Sometimes hard and sharp, other times soft and elegant. Werner wandered along the coasts of Europe. Sometimes it was rough, then calm or everything in between. Yet the washing water always touched its inseparable companion: the land.

A perpetual motion of attraction and withdrawal, a flirtatious waterline. Fascinated, he looks at the water and documents what it does to people. Beaches and shores that seem to offer people time, needed to come to themselves. He immortalizes their moments of reflections.

Reflections that create subdued emotions, bring cheerful relation to life or evoke melancholy memories.
