SUMMERBREAK 9 - 31 AUGUST

Heitsch Gallery goes into summer break August 9th til 31st and is enthusiatically welcoming you back  September 1st just in time for the start of the art autumn  This year's Open Art - the Gallery Weekend in Munich - will take place from September 9th to September 11th, starting with our VIP preview on Thursday, September 8 from 6 - 9 p.m. (Reservations requested at pr@heitschgalerie.de) while the Open Art Vernissage will begin on Friday, September 9th from 4 - 9 p.m. During the exhibition period through October 29, we will be open at our usual hours or by appointment.



This year's highlight is the Italian Op-Art artist ANTONIO MARRA, who with his own found style reflects 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 on our current behavioral culture. You are cordially invited to visit us at the opening on September 9 from 4 to 9 pm!



We look forward to welcoming you back to our space soon!

HENNING VON GIERKE'S MODERN MONA LISA IS ATTACKED AT ART KARLSRUHE

HENNING VON GIERKE'S MODERN MONA LISA IS ATTACKED AT ART KARLSRUHE

After a successful art fair in Karlsruhe, we are now available for you again at our usual location in Munich. 



Five days of sales, interior and collector consultations as well as rows of interesting conversations are behind us - we thank you very much for your great interest. 



As one of the very few galleries, the introduction and presentation of our NFTs gave us particular pleasure. For this, we would like to refer you once again to our collaborating team of experts at FARBE.io, who will of course continue to be available to advise you if you are interested in buying. 



As you may already have noticed, in addition to all the positive news, there was also a small incident reminiscent of the attack on the Mona Lisa in Paris, which has since gone viral: armed with a piece of cake, he goes after Henning von Gierke's "modern Mona Lisa", throwing the pastry with full force right into her face and shouting the blunt words "Shit art market!". 



A statement on the much-talked-about von Gierke case: 



"A disrespectful person wanted to join the ranks of the art assassins who made a destructive attack on Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa.



For me as a painter it is mean that one accepts to destroy a picture - with me it went well because my picture painted with oil colors is not hurt by a cream cake - with water it can be wiped off without a trace remains... But to curse the "commercial art" with a loud cry is for me, for us painters abominable - we live from it and our pictures are our life.



The reaction of the people who witnessed this moment was very compassionate. One woman helped me scrape the cake away from my hair, my glasses, and my clothes. Someone shook my hand and said they sympathised with how hurtful that was and hours later I was still being approached to see if me and my Mona Lisa made it through okay..."



A video of the incident can be found here



In the meantime, you can admire Marco Casentini's works up close in Munich until July 30, before we take a summer break in August. 



Big things are already planned for September - keep September 8th free and stay tuned!

VERNISSAGE MINIMAL AFFAIRS - MARCO CASENTINI

VERNISSAGE MINIMAL AFFAIRS - MARCO CASENTINI

Heitsch Gallery is pleased to present MARCO CASENTINIS new exhibition minimal affairs starting May 20th 2022.



With his concrete painting that translates emotions deriving from urban landscapes, the Milan and Los Angeles-based artist explores the dynamics of light, color and space, creating imaginary spaces through geometric overlaps and a play on contrasts.



Constantly pushing the boundaries of painting, "minimal affairs" describes precisely this love of the new, of change - and in his latest works he creates pixel-like punctuations through subtle overlays that establish a minimalist context.



Inspired by urban life in Northern Italy and Southern California, his language of color and form penetrates into everyday life and prompted not least Maserati or Ferrari to collaborate - another allusion to his artistic "affairs".



We invite you to form your own opinion of Casentini's art and look forward to welcoming you to our gallery for this purpose.



The artist will be present.
