until 16.03. | #2339ARTatBerlin | Galerie ART CRU Berlin presents from 8th February 2019 an exhibition with paintings by the artist Günter Neupel.

Galerie ART CRU Berlin is exhibiting works by Günter Neupel. Between drawing and painting, between fairy tale and myth, the artist has developed his own visual language. His pictures tell stories that seemingly come from another world and exist independent of time.

His dense images are populated by a variety of figures. The pictures seem to be based on an order that gives the subjects a certain narrative structure: Neupel groups the figures together in rows, rectangular divisions or concentrically in mandala-like forms. In his recurring motifs, you will often finds animals such as birds, lions, fish or deer, which seem to be small deities linked with a symbolic meaning. Crowned figures can be seen, presumably kings and fools, as well as a recurring bird-headed figure reminiscent of ancient Egyptian artistic representations of Horus. The figures, created with casein paint, are usually outlined with fine-tipped pens, giving the images a consistent flatness. At the same time, they appear exceptionally vivid and full of secret meaning, animated by a vibrating energy that touches every square inch of the picture. This effect is bolstered by dynamic ornamentation using various elements such as air currents, waves, stars and geometric shapes. Information about the encrypted messages is contained in the titles. “Lied der Erde” (Song to the Earth), “Das leise Zittern vor Ostern” (The Silent Vibration Before Easter) and “Im Rausch der Tage” (Intoxicated by the Days) are a few of the titles Neupel chooses in addition to “Körperliches wird Traum” (The Physical Becomes a Dream) and “Tanz der Derwische” (Dance of the Dervishes). The depictions unfold a captivating effect in which the boundaries of perception are blurred. If you immerse yourself in the work of this artist, you feel as if you have discovered a long hidden treasure that invites you to decipher the eternal questions of life with ancient knowledge.

For Günter Neupel (born 1958 in Munich), drawing and painting often serve as a prayer, a meditation, a method of experiencing silence. In 1982, during a stay at the Max Planck Institute for Psychiatry, he began to paint and, after various phases of creation, he reached the current form of his artistic presentation.

Neupel has won first place of the art award SEELENART several times and is its special prizewinner of 2018. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
