extended until 30.05. | #2713ARTatBerlin | Galerie Kremers presents from 14th March 2020 the exhibition “In a Color Frenzy – Narrative Painting behind Glass” with works by the artist Natascha Mann. In parallel, surreal works by Paul Schwietzke will be shown.
The artist Natascha Mann, who was born in Bayreuth in 1946, is a master of painting and playfully challenging the viewer´s beliefs, which are effective in role models of male painters and female models e.g.
Her paintings sparkle with power and imagination. Her numerous trips to exotic locations such as Polynesia and Micronesia, had a strong influence on her characters and pictorial stories. Numerous exhibitions and participations in international art fairs document her work. Natascha Mann studied painting in Stuttgart and Munich and received a fullbright scholarship at the university in Corvallis (USA). After that, she completed a full dance degree at the Folkwang School in Essen. She taught at the University of Applied Sciences for Design in Würzburg and headed the etching workshop at the Academy in Nuremberg. Natascha Mann lives and works in Marktbreit near Würzburg.
Natascha Mann, Amor und Psyche, 1986, Acrylic behind Glas, 80 x 60 cm
We show the colorful and expressive reverse glass pictures from the “Painter and Model” series inspired by Picasso. The playful lightness, lust and sensual joy of the portrayed shines towards the viewer. A sensual pleasure beyond feminist dogmas.
The exhibition of Natascha Mann will be accompanied by works of Paul Schwietzke under the exhibition titlel “A Fresh Breeze at the BER and other surreal ecstasies”.
“Immersing yourself in a work of art corresponds to a wonderfully uncomplicated and environmentally
friendly travel experience and is available at any time with some practice.” (
This kind of independence from public transport, and the completion of prestigious construction projects is the painterly preoccupation of artist Paul Schwietzke, born in Düsseldorf in 1952. Like Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke, Schwietzke was one of the eight master students at K.O. Goetz. In contrast to his better-known colleagues, he turned to surrealism. Now, as the Surrealist art movement experiences a renaissance, Paul Schwietzke’s world of images appears strikingly up-to-date.
The artist’s subject is not limited to airports, his choice of motifs is extremely varied offering abstract works which examine the structure of surfaces as well as figurative and narrative works. As magical architect, Paul Schwietzke investigates the possibilities of human perception in all its facets and the way in which we use it to give meaning to what we perceive.
The exhibition in the Gothic Hall gives an overview of his recent works.
