until 17.04. | #2969ARTatBerlin | Galerie Michael Haas shows from 6. March 2021 a solo exhibition with works by the artist Peter Böhnisch.
In March 2021, Galerie Michael Haas will dedicate a comprehensive solo exhibition to the painter Peter Böhnisch for the first time, which will occupy both the premises in Niebuhrstraße and the Kunst Lager Haas.
In his new, monumental sand paintings, Peter Böhnisch explores the possibilities of painting beyond oil paint and canvas. The artist sets enigmatic scenes in dialogue with portraits, including those of fictitious space travellers, and thus combines traditional pictorial themes and contemporary elements. The focus is always on the use of sand, which Böhnisch sometimes uses as a sculptural, relief-like background and at other times as a direct painting medium.
