New Additions: Matthias Esch, Benjamin Rubloff

New in our portfolio:

The ornamental paintings by MATTHIAS ESCH (b. 1988 in Andernach, Rhineland-Palatinate) draw their strength from the contrast between expressive, free brushstrokes and strict order. The one forms the base of each work, the other lies over it as a tight geometric structure. In a symbolic sense, this contrast stands for the tension between the individual’s will for expression and desire for freedom and the controlling systems of society, from the family to language to the state. Or for the difference between the compulsive unconscious on the one hand and the conscious, controlling ego on the other.

On his walks through Berlin, BENJAMIN RUBLOFF (b. 1975 in New York City) photographs small details of graffiti and subsequently transforms the images into mysterious, abstract paintings called “Ciphers”. The ubiquitous, quickly sprayed signs, that may have already disappeared tomorrow, are turned into permanent art works, done in meticulous brush work. By taking these details out of their original context the artist turns them anonymous – and yet, even after their conversion, they still refer to a specific place.

The works in this special exhibition will eventually change to our larger theme shows, such as “Abstractions: Painterly, Diverse” or “Constructivism, Mostly.”
