What have in common the artists Roman Klonek, Fabian Freese and Jessus Hernandez? Apart from the use of bright colors, they use the “hard edge”, a type of painting in which, abrupt transitions are found between color areas that are often of one unvarying color. By setting two-dimensional color areas next two each other, an imaginary room is created and becomes accessible to the spectator.
However, their ideas and artistic approaches are different. The Heitsch Gallery presents the work of these three artists in a collective exhibition called Magic Colors. Roman Klonek uses the technique of wood-carving, adopting reduced forms and allegories. Fabian Freese‘s artworks play with the urban environment with minimalist painting, objects, and photographs which are partially painted in neon colors. On the other hand, the Californian-based artist Jessus Hernandez put architecture and nature together in his creations, combining linear outlines with vibrant colors and geometric abstract forms.
The exhibition Magic Colors can be visited at Heitsch Gallery until the 5th of May (from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 7 pm and Saturday from 12 am to 6 pm). More info on the Heitsch Gallery webpage.
