until 16.10. | #2841ARTatBerlin + #2843ARTatBerlin | Michaela Helfrich Galerie presents from 10th September 2020 The exhibition Sag Was – Say Something with works by the artists Simon Czapla, Susanne Husemann, Thomas Jüptner, Ulrike Pisch, Pina Rath, Elena Tamburini and Gerard Waskievitz.
“Pop culture meets hyperrealism. Once Simon Czapla sets up a new canvas, the drama starts. With precision and humor, he stages his protagonists and questions our identity and existence in its current state in a subtle yet sharp-tongued way.”
“Perhaps the contemporary heroic journey is a journey in ourself and the hero is somone who is able to transform the battleground between heart, larynx and brain into a departure point for hummingbirds. The power of the hummingbird transcends time and creates an image.“
“You have enchanted me, beloved, my bride! “One look out of your eyes and I was spellbound. Tell me, does it have a charm, the jewelry on your neck? How happy you make me with your tenderness!” (Bible, Song of Songs 4: 9-11)
“If words are too sharp but colour is rich, speak out with the scales, find a place for the figures. If they want to be heavy allow them. For the light ones create some air. Leave space behind and tomorrow open.”
“A here and now in layers, like parchment. The remnants bear witness to what is absent. A desire which will never be satisfied. Stepping in from the unseen, with a trace that repeats itself, but never the same. Draws you to me, leads you away from me.”
“Autobiographic, fun, joking, critic, dreams, courage, consolation, technique, quotes, concentration, light, emotions, discipline, shadow, paint, discover, characters, brush strokes, stories, colors, constellations, mass, coincided, sensibility… my art doesn’t know any rules, it‘s the last freedom i keep and protect. Art is and always will be.“
“The studio is overcast. No insight possible. Volume and shouting. The canvas becomes an acid test. Born out of obscurity. Exertion and excitement. Respect is the legacy.”
