JENS JENSEN, Painting
HANNES MEINHARD, Smithery
25 July – 13 September 2014
JENS JENSEN processes further fields of printmaking techniques: Lithography, which allows a fast drawing or painting style with which he hosts a radiant celebration of color, and the broadest techniques in his graphic work: Drypoint-etching and Metal Etching.
HANNES MEINHARD's artistic attitude resembles most closely that of Dieter Roth. Like Roth, he doesn't concentrate on the articulation of a style, but transforms impulses and experience into his work, out of which grows his world of obsessions using iron as an anarchist ic segment in our present digital age. The sculpture develops out of one concentrated piece of machinery wrought or forged into spatial assemblages consisting of multiple found objects and fragments. Here the borders between art and life have been radically lifted.
