Catharina Hell is a post-conceptual artist based in Antwerp, Belgium. She identifies herself as an exuberant minimalist. Her body of work delves into profound themes such as the obscure, invisibility, the nuanced use and misuse of language, and the painful miscommunication that plagues human interaction.
‘Adoration of the Magi’ by Eckart Hahn, 2011 (after Pieter Paul Rubens), acrylic on canvas, collection Museum am Dom, Würzburg
The biblical scene of the Holy Family on Christmas Eve, familiar to the viewer, is visibly reduced. Reduced to the figures directly involved in the event and to the gifts of the Magi - all and completely wrapped in coloured plastic bags and packaging materials. Only the arrangement of the life-size painted figures exposes the scene as a manger situation.
THE GREAT ANONYMOUS
This exhibition shows the creative achievements of the young artist Benediktas Marija Zukas (b. 1992) over the last three years. The author is convinced that abstraction cannot become old and irrelevant. In order to look at rather traditional medium of painting in a more modern way, Zukas uses non-traditional tools for painting such as construction brushes, aerosol paints, etc.
