ARTIST’S CHOICE: HEITSCH >< MARRA
- Artists of the exhibition
Antonio Marra’s abstract works remain truly fascinating due to their surprising change of form and colour. Each of his multi-perspective paintings contains several more pictures which reveal themselves by circling around the canvas. Step by step the spectator is drawn into a vivid and dynamic kaleidoscope of shape and colour. Marra’s art is a surprising experience of unique visual and dimensional effects. This painter has come to his very own style reflecting and redefining the techniques of Op-art and Orphism.
Jœrg Heitsch studied free painting at the Art Institute of Chicago as well as with Jörg Immendorf and Helmut Sturm at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. His artistic work moves between Minimalism, Concrete Art and Op-Art. In 1993, during a stay in San Francisco, he developed the ongoing project "Opening Worlds", which deals with the history of evolution on Earth at the interface of science and art. In 1994, Jörg Heitsch founded the KUNSTNETZWERK Galerie für internationale zeitgenössische Kunst at Gärtnerplatz in Munich, which today continues as the Heitsch Gallery. His work as a gallery owner has always been characterized by his content-related and formal engagement as an artist. Jörg Heitsch has developed and implemented numerous cultural concepts at the interface of art, communication and market.
