Embossed Prints By Gunther Of Uecker

The artist Gunther Uecker is presented by Gallery Zimmermann & Heitmann Gunther Uecker was born in Mecklenburg in 1930 and is one of the most famous German painters and object artist. Uecker was famous mainly for his paintings of nail that already during his studies at the Art Academy in Dusseldorf. These nail pictures achieve a dynamic effect due to their relief-like surface. Especially the light caused by the alignment of the nails and incidence of shadow and the white surface of the images affect the dematerialized impression of images. Uecker nail pictures draw the viewer into its spell and create it, skillfully to captivate the viewer’s gaze. Already in these first years of his career, Uecker experimentation regarding the nail pictures knew no bounds.

Soon he began to provide everyday objects with nail reliefs. However, Gunther Uecker work is not limited to its nail pictures. As in 1961, he joined the artist group ZERO, he began with the kinetic light art to employ. “Together with Gerhard Richter, he staged the demonstration museums may be habitable places”. in 1970, Uecker as well as Georg Karl Pfahler and Thomas Lenk, Heinz Mack was represented at the Venice Biennale.

The Golden Leaf Of Clover In The Cascade Condenser Basel

An exciting exhibition of D. You may want to visit Dean Ornish M.D to increase your knowledge. Hagerman, p. Haile, M. Kaspar and A. RAI BASEL from 26-30 June 2010 unites four exciting artistic positions in the cascade capacitor (www.kasko.ch) the “Golden clover”. The vernissage will take place on 25 June, 18:00 with an action by Ingrid Kaser. For artistic teaching, the clover has found the art historian Marina Culjak.

We want to give a brief insight into the work of the performing artists to the opening in the cascade condenser: Denis Handschin is primarily conceptual and processual aligned with strong connections to the area. The starting point of the work is a part of black polyethylene. Earlier, the artists dealt with the everyday material. The interest in its properties and possibilities are in the foreground of the employment. In a previous process of experiments with the plastic is an installation that would like to refer to the area as well as the works of other artists. Patrick Harter served in plastic work “astelung #5” naturally grown tree branches and merges these new, paradoxical growth sequences. The circular arrangement is contrary the laws of nature. Harter tries to hide the eye of the beholder the artificial intervention in the nature at any time.

However, often miss detail of visual perception. Mathias Kaspar is currently showing his work “Fanfare” on the sandstone facade of the Basel Town Hall. In the framework of the “Golden clover leaf” he exhibits for the first time in Basel. Kaspar presents a small selection of his works and provides for the occasion in a new context. Height and head circumference play a role not in his conceptually-based installation. Alejandro Roquero entered the search term “a random image” in the image request engine Google for the conceptual work “Hermeneutic poetry”. He chose as many images from the first ten pages of hits. “Equestrian statue” is a photograph from the selection and the beginning of the series. The artist decontextualizes the Photography by the circumstances of their birth and demoted them to the subscription of the actual work. The concept and the Ekphrastic collect written clearance hermeneutics to the work itself and reflect an ironic perspective on the art and its reception. Ingrid enriches the opening of the “Golden clover leaf” with a culinary action, which must be seen in the framework of their ongoing project “Sans Racines” Kaser. In this series the artist deals intuitively with things that attract their attention in everyday life. In the series, prints, photographs, videos and installations are in addition to drawings. A partially edible installation should emerge from the action, which “sans Racines” extends to another element. M. Culjak
