OPENING HENNING VON GIERKE - DER STETE WANDEL

Henning von Gierke's works are painted stagings of life. His paintings impress not only by the masterful implementation of the paintings, but especially by his profound themes that lead us through his everyday life, raising essential questions of existence and illuminate them in the context of nature, religion, philosophy and art history in the here and now. Art - and especially his art - manages to make us reflect on the unknown. What happens to our minds when we die? What is justice? What is beauty? And what, ultimately, is the meaning of life?



Henning von Gierke manages to go beyond purely objective beauty and to understand art as a science of the senses that educates us. His success speaks for itself: he has not only captivated me with his profound painting, but film greats such as Werner Herzog, directors such as Wolfgang Wagner and Michael Hampe, and conductors such as Wolfgang Sawallisch have also sought his collaboration. A large international audience and long-time collectors accompany the painter on his way. Art is, next to language, the oldest form of communication and conveys through the respective medium between the lines the essence of life for those who are in search of meaning and the essential.

OPENING ISABELLA BERR - BEGEGNUNGEN

OPENING: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 4 - 9 PM



ISABELLA BERR presents, for the first time in the Heitsch Gallery, her latest artworks in her solo exhibition "Encounters".



The pictorial worlds of Isabella Berr do not immediately reveal themselves to the casual observer. What is shown seems at the same time strangely absent, elusive, at any rate diffuse. We cannot rely on our eyes.



The imagination does the main work. Desires and fears, memories and projections slip into the perception. The whole picture emerges only in the viewer. What he sees reveals more about himself than about the artist.



She makes a point of not staging, of not changing anything in a big way. Everything is pure photography, even if it seems like painting. But it is not photography as we are used to it. A realistic image of the world? That would be too simple. In Isabella Berr's work, everything is multiply fractured: the inner world of the outer world of the inner world. The theatrum mundi she stages plays on the stage of the soul. She presents dream worlds through which we walk like sleepwalkers.

ANTONIO MARRA's abstract art is defined by a multi-perspective idea that turns his paintings into vivid, moving kaleidoscopes that change with each step, creating different images depending on the angle. The artist, who grew up in Naples, adds a highly topical context to this startling change of form and color with his new exhibition "Tik Tok is therapy," in which - fascinated by the expansion of technological possibilities - he presents the social media app TikTok as an icon of the extreme present and encourages us to reflect on its effects. In doing so, Marra does not criticize, but merely states the obvious, leaving it up to the viewer to see the current zeitgeist as positive or negative. His new works draw a tension between an immeasurable meritocracy, the almost complete abolition of the private sphere, and a fleeting hyper-fastness on the one hand, and a world full of limitless new possibility on the other. One novella in his abstract TikTok series is Words in Geometry, which the artist, who lives in Offenbach by choice, uses again for the first time since the 1990s, deftly creating profound ambivalences with words like "macht. Tik Tok stands not only for the absolute now, but also for an assumed necessity of self-expression, which alströstende support runs like a thread through society: a kind of new form of therapy.With his own found style, the painter reflects on the techniques of Op-Art and Orphism, creating a surprising experience that allows us to experience unique visual and spatial effects and simultaneously stimulates us to ponder our current behavioral culture.
