until 08.11. |#3626ARTatBerlin | Galerie Dittmar presents from 13. September 2022 the exhibition “Drawing with light” by the artist Marcel Gähler.

„In many ways his drawings touch on things that are universal but nearly impossible to express verbally, distant memories, emotions, deep feelings of love or loss. – A kind of longing for something deep within.“ Rebecca Kerlin, Philadelphia, 2016

Marcel Gähler works primarily in the medium of drawing, the entire layout of the sheets as well as all the valeurs are entrusted to the drawing stroke. The large-format watercolours are also in black and white, the quality of expression is the same without losing the specificity of the respective technique. The innovative approach also relates to the relationship to photography and the way in which this is made serviceable to a certain experience of the world and artistic transformation in the medium of drawing.

The elaborate process includes several intermediate stages, at the end of which is the graphite drawing. The artist extracts extraordinary possibilities from it in the reproduction of reality, which is itself already conveyed, whereby the meticulousness of detail does not take on a life of its own. The continuum of the dense line structure, the grey values and gradations constitute a pictorial reality of their own. Alongside the narrative immediacy, there is often a diffuse atmosphere, the objects dissolve into light, dematerialise. The drawings elude direct access; for all their closeness, they retain something weightless, distanced, balancing the moment of feeling and the value of memory. It remains a secret of these works that their intensity is rather increased by this.

In addition to solo and group exhibitions in Basel, Bern, Boston, Brussels, Geneva, London, New York, Paris, Philadelphia and Zurich, he has also participated in international fairs in Basel, London, Miami, New York, Paris and Seoul. In 2019, Edition Dittmar published a book on the artist with 33 illustrations and text contributions by the renowned writer Peter Stamm and Dr Kathleen Bühler from the Kunstmuseum Bern.
