We show pictures of Katharina brook, Helmut Gutbrod and Holzskulpturen of Peter Hermann. If one believes something to have recognized it yields back and withdraws themselves from the clarity. Katharina brook plays the reality. It hides it in colors, forms, surfaces - lets appear recognizable aspects. But the pictures sit down imageful together, they do not tell atmospherically. Configurations of own symbolic systems place relations ago, work and will interaction. They give area for own ideas, fantasies to the viewer. In the center of the artistic work of Helmut Gutbrod are located organic cell forms, architectural structures and abstracted landscapes, which the artist reduces indicationful to elementary basic forms. In a tensionful Consolidated color sounds, the one fragile entireness develop for dialogue of different plans form and the viewer Leave area to manufacture own meaning meanings. Peter Hermann dedicates itself primarily to the human figure. Its wood sculptures, which it reduces to the substantial, every now and then by animals or also everyday life articles are accompanied. These attributes obtain somewhat particularly valuable, supplement the work and permit contentwise associations. Its figures look into the world, but its view is at the same time inward arranged. This lends a quiet to them Presence and somewhat very full. We would be pleased to be able to welcome you with a glass of Bowle.
