Otto Fried – Heaven can wait / Heaven can’t wait

Exhibition Price: 25€

Otto Fried was born in 1922 in Koblenz, but left Germany in 1936 due to the persecution of Jewish citizens and settled in Portland, Oregon. In 1949 he traveled to Paris to work in the studio of Fernand Léger for two years. For a long time he lived and worked in New York and Paris before settling permanently in Paris from 2010. Primarily based on cosmic-looking discs and circles, Fried developed his very own pictorial language, which distinguished him as the heir of the Avantgarde, combining approaches from German Expressionism, French Cubism as well as American Realism up to the Concrete Art developing in France after 1945.

Shop Katalog Cover Buch Deng Guoyang

Deng Guoyuan. Butterflies Conquer the Dinosaurs’ Garden

Deng Guoyuan is a successful artist who has been working in China for decades. He was also President of the renowned Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts until the end of 2018. For twenty years Deng has dealt with the question of existence in a world in which nature has not only been tamed but is threatened by massive human intervention. Until his latest creations, he followed a path that led from the Chinese tradition of ink drawing to abstract oil painting and its fragmentation into individual pictorial motifs, where the reminiscences of nature are barely recognisable. Artificial installations reveal a tamed nature that can generate life only in terms of retort. He envisages his new project as the evolution of genetic mutation and as an absolute apocalypse.
