until 23.04. | #3030ARTatBerlin | Galerie Inga Kondeyne – Raum für Zeichnung presents from 23rd April 2021 a solo show with works by the artist Johannes Regien.
Johannes Regin’s works call for a close look; it is a look into overlapping fragments of traces with the smallest deviations of his point settings, of shifts in tension in the rhythm of his grids. Seeping traces of old paint and remnants of drawings attract attention. A surprising abundance becomes perceptible in the seemingly even order of these meditative pictorial spaces. In the current work phase, the individual dots are double and triple superimposed dot signs.
Moments of collection, of concentration on the part of the artist are transferred to us viewers. Regin consciously engages with the found material he has selected in a lengthy process. It is immediately clear to him how large his innumerable dots have to be, and he recognises whether they have to be drawn or painted on, or whether they have to be engraved, punched or chiselled into the material. Found objects are a counterpart for him, he looks into their stories; gently touching or hard set, a state of suspension is evoked.
Stronger colours now come into play from the edges. Here, too, fine colour overlaps often take place. Regin draws himself a nuanced framework that is stable for changes in his world.
