The group exhibition presents works by three artists whose expression in the painting could not be more different. You can currently find a current exhibition of their works at for​you​and​your​cu​sto​mers Essen location.

In the exhibition at the Essen location of foryouandyourcustomers, works by three artists meet, whose starting point is painting in very different ways. Willi Baumeister, one of the most important German artists of modernism, is represented with a lithograph from 1937, created at a time when he was banned from the painting by the Nazis for his path to abstraction. Sali Oelhafen’s works show abstract forms whose creation process seeks a balance between chaos and order by means of flowing color. These forms sometimes become independent into the room, detach themselves from the image carrier and become apparently floating objects in front of the wall. With his monochrome works, Christian Stock repeatedly questions the essence of painting. His theme is color itself. In years of painting processes, countless layers of paint superimposed on one another produce color cubes, images with object character. (Baerbel Messing)
