to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

"MINIATUREN" at Galerie Freitag 18.30

It happens so often ... we rush to an exhibition the very last day. 
Artworks in "miniature" allowing the gallery to invite 28 artists from 6 different countries.  A glimpse on some of them.  Our time was limited, so I didn't capture everything.

Thomas Schönauer - Molekulare Skulptur - steel, epoxy
with unintential self-portrait
Joost Meyer on the wall

Robert Bischof - Mister Club - lead, concrete

Romain Van Wissen - Une Situation Donnée Voit Le Jour - acrylic on canvas
more work of the same artist in this post

Susanne Walter - 'woodcut'
the artist goes into the forest where she picks pieces of wood and makes a print of them on paper, the wood remains in the forest

Vera Sous - detail

Petra Deta Weidemann - detail of  Balkon (sold in kit) - wood, concrete, thread

Kai Savelsberg - Kopf zu! - oil, acrylic, wood

upper right corner, detail - Mikael Jacobsson; bottom, detail - Romain Van Wissen; right Harry Meyer

More works in the new extention of the gallery - works not in the "Miniaturen" exhibition.

Hubert Heinrich - Küchenpersonal - acrylic on canvas

a very small detail of the large painting above

Anja Weinberg - wood sculptures
similar work by another artist in tomorrow's post

François Du Plessis - Encyclopedia Brittanica - detail of his latest artwork
find more posts on this artist in 'search this blog' on top right of page and a studio visit (and interview on Dutch television) HERE

Alexander Freund - Bahn Frei - kinetic art - sand, glass, wood, magnets
reminds me of Sjef Meijman's work in this post 

Patrick Siemons - Georg Elser - wood, chalk, resistors
A tricky one to explain as the translation does not quite give the real meaning. 
Georg Elser , decided to assassinate Hitler in 1939 with a selfmade bomb - he was the only person to do this solo - which exploded thirteen minutes after Hitler had left the room. 
The resistor(s) used in the portrait are called Wiederstand in German which is the same word for resistance (as in opposition against the Nazi regime)

Sigrid Von Lintig - Harry Meyer - Romain Van Wissen

By chance do we get an unexpected peek at the upcoming solo-exhibition of painter Sigrid Von Lintig (left).

Sorry for the not so good picture Robert Mertens (gallery-owner, on the right), this is a snapshot as you were rushing past.
