until 19.03. | #3290ARTatBerlin | Salongalerie Die Möwe presents from 29th January 2022 the exhibition Sceneries – Experienced. Imagined. Dreamed. with works by the painters and graphic artists Wilfried Reiff, Fritz Kuhr and Rolf Curt.
As precise observers of their environment, the artists in the exhibition tell multi-layered and allusive stories and anecdotes in their works. They lead the viewer into familiar or mysterious worlds and create new references to reality.
Wilfried Reiff (*1954) is a master in the field of woodcuts. His visual language is inspired by Expressionism. In his prints he creates pictorial worlds ranging from narrative to lyrical, in which the focus is often on human beings with their characteristics, longings and shortcomings. In “Bistro” and “Poker” the artist chose to take back the colour in order to highlight the intensity of the atmosphere.
After the Second World War, the Bauhaus artist Fritz Kuhr (1899-1975), whose art was defamed as “degenerate” during national socialism, expresses his regained joie de vivre and boundless creative energy in musical playful compositions. The passionate guitar playing, the jazzy bass solo and the vibrant performance of a ballroom ensemble can be heard in his paintings.
With Rolf Curt (1931-2006), the exhibition presents a imaginative thinker. In his artworks, the artist arranges familiar scenes into new visual impressions. For example, he combines striking Berlin buildings and squares with urban scenes that appear real and yet surreal.
Likewise, in his paintings from the 1970s, he intertwines dream and reality and turns the world into a stage.
In the Small Cabinet you can see works by Josef Hegenbarth, Karl Hubbuch, Curt Lahs and Katja Meirwosky.
