... on paper
We are pleased to introduce a newly conceived series of curated online exhibitions of works by our gallery artists. Parallel to our regular offline programme in the gallery, we are focusing on rarely shown or older works. To start with, we present selected works on paper by Hideaki Yamanobe.
In the field of tension between drawing, collage and painting, the Japanese artist gives greater weight to the representational element, especially in his works on paper, and breaks with his characteristic layers of colour based on black and white.
In his serially created compositions on paper – as in his paintings on canvas, the titles of the works reflect variations and further developments of a motif idea – Yamanobe assigns special importance to the painting ground. In contrast to his canvases, where the edges are emphasised, here the artist plays with the space, the emptiness around the mostly centred motif: The material "paper" – handmade paper or solid drawing cardboard – becomes an integral part of the work as a kind of frame.
From 17/01/2021 at 6pm you can view the works here in our Viewing Room and further below in our Picture Gallery. All works will be available for sale in our for the occasion newly created online shop. We will be happy to send you further information on request.
