46th exhibition with works by Jürgen Jansen and Thomas Zika
You are very welcome to visit the exhibition upon prior booking by telephone or email.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 46th exhibition of foryouandyourcustomers where we present the works of artist Jürgen Jansen and Thomas Zika at our location in Essen. In a new “Cross Over”, the two artists show mostly large-format paintings that are full of energy and sparkling colour intensity.
After almost two years, we can at last resume our exhibition activities: in a new “Cross Over”, two artists of different genres meet. They do, however, have something in common – the use of strong colours and an extremely extensive range of colours.
The artist Jürgen Jansen who hails from Düsseldorf, master pupil of Per Kirkeby and Jan Dibbets, works with heterogeneous materials, which he pours in many layers onto the painting surface and then spreads with various tools: acrylic meets oil paint; epoxy resin meets watercolours. The shapes are reminiscent of cell structures and space shots, of flowers and corals, of objects both physical and abstract. With ease, the artist connects disparates and creates distinct works of great force and magic, which carry the beholder into fantastic worlds.
The visual spaces in the tableaux of the photographer Thomas Zika from Essen convey the same magical feeling. In his “Butterflies” series, the butterflies throw their shadows onto scenery that consists of bits of nature photos and elements that are graphic and ornamental. These pictures are not the result of digital processing, but collage and composition using leaves and photos that Zika has on his desk, which the artist then photographs again in turn.
