until 13.11. | #3204ARTatBerlin | lorch + seidel contemporary is currently showing a solo exhibition of paintings by the artist Andrea Lehnert in the temporary showroom (Potsdamer Straße 93).
The exhibition „Paintings by Andrea Lehnert“ shows an excerpt from different series of work from the years 2018-2021. Small plein-air- and medium formats up to large diptychs in the format 300 x 300 cm, the latter mostly on raw, colourless primed canvas or jute.
The topics range from landscape, floral or animal motifs to figurative and portrait painting, but always combined with the endeavour to dissolve objectivity into abstraction, color space and color tone.
Landscape suddenly turns into a volcanic eruption, a hurricane, a flood, a cloud fog or spherical ether.
Magnolia blossoms shine against monochrome backgrounds in all their delicate, ephemeral and beguiling beauty.
Portraits of the American jazz singer Billie Holiday reflect the inwardness of the singer in search of the melody.
Lonely “table dancers” look like the last painterly snapshots before the dancers disappear into the color space.
The large-format diptych “Battle” (220 x 320 cm), inspired by a Rubens drawing, captures the furor of the horses and riders delivered to the battlefield, especially through the only sketchy figures.
Fug itivity is a predominant characteristic of Andrea Lehnert’s pictures. Experienced things dissolve into imagination. Regardless of the motif, Andrea Lehnert’s painting approaches the nuances and spaces, the unfathomable and the unrepresentable.
Andrea Lehnert was born in Dortmund in 1974. She studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and was a master class student with Siegfried Anzinger. Her work is shown in galleries in Düsseldorf, Berlin, Luxembourg and the Netherlands; In September 2021 she was represented at the trade fairs Positions Berlin (lorch + seidel) and KunstRAI Amsterdam (Nasty Alice). Andrea Lehnert lives in Düsseldorf.
