Exhibition | 29.04.2011 - 15.10.2011
Horizontal lines and structures dominate the abstract paintings by the American painter Mark Harrington. In an elaborate process, he uses various tools to draw tangible traces into the layers of the impasto, still wet acrylic paint. By doing so, his works becomes “readable” in the sense of lines that have been “inscribed,” as it were, into them. Harrington stresses the fact that he and his paintings have a direct relationship to jazz. And by the same token, his works inspire jazz pianist Michael Wollny and vibraphonist Christopher Dell to create new sounds. All three artists even speak of the synergies and affinities in their work. And all three are on equally intimate terms with the collector and music producer Siggi Loch.
