Beverly Hills 40210
Dora Celentano, Alexander Reuter
03.03.2017 – 31.03.2017
The compositions of Dora Celentano’s large-format woodcuts appear fragmented and vague. The planes of the image seem to shift constantly. Depicted subjects are plants and still lifes, allowing a play between inside and outside and creating a yearning atmosphere. Through collage-like compositions, pieces of our modern dreamworld spread across the image planes.
In his paintings Alexander Reuter unites conceptual seeming harshness with almost accidentally emerging picture planes. For this purpose he primarily uses spray paint in order to create nebular surfaces or large-scale fractured colour fields.
Both artists are currently studying under Stefan Kürten at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
