until 01.02. | #3212ARTatBerlin | janinebeangallery shows from 19th November 2021 at the salon of the gallery the exhibition Wunderliche Entdeckung by the artist Petra Rintelen.
Petra Rintelen’s paintings are a concentrated look at the being of life and things. Some of the pictures are reminiscent of myths, dream moments that explore human existence narratively in a bold interweaving of movement and stillness.
Petra Rintelen’s still lifes show a no less typical signature, balancing shadow and light, dark and bright in a well thought-out colour composition, so that the objects unfold tenderness and power in equal measure. The seemingly random is transformed for the viewer into a world of the captured moment. Petra Rintelen’s pictures tell of the spiritual richness of silence.
