until 14.03. | #2678ARTatBerlin | Köppe Contemporary presents from 14th February 2020 the exhibition Strange Days with paintings and drawings by the artist Daniel Harms.
The art of Daniel Harms (*1980 in Hamburg, since 2007 based in Berlin) is inspired by many sources. Even if one initially has the impression that Harms’ visual language is close to graffiti and comics before his paintings, it is above all references to the fine arts that have contributed to the stylistic quality of his works. His paintings are mainly made of acrylic and oil paints.
“The magic power of the pictures of the Dresden Brücke artists fascinates him, ‘their carefree and unadulterated nature’. The richness of detail in Daniel Harms’ art culminates in the sprinkling of text, which forms a diary-like foundation […]” (Christoph Tannert). But artists such as Max Beckmann, Egon Schiele and Francis Bacon also count among his models. Transitions between ‘high and low’ are thus characteristic of Daniel Harms’ art. The artist usually develops the themes in cycles. War, Little Red Riding Hood and Mirrors are examples of such cycles, which are preceded by long researches.
