„One can never be never sure whether Hiramatsu’s creatures are still in the process of becoming or whether they are already withering, fading, being brushed away. What exactly are they looking for in the surprisingly romantic landscapes that surround them, these landscapes that at times can become profound and monumental like William Turner’s North Sea paintings or the works of the Hudson River School painters that captivated the New World in the mid-19th century? Hiramatsu, too, is creating a visionary, new, outsider-like world in which nature, the history of painting and reflections of the human psyche merge. ⁣

The artist, born in 1986 in Wakayama, Japan, works with oil paint on paper, which is mounted onto wooden boards. This setup makes even the smallest gesture stand out. After studying art in Tokyo and focusing on drawing, Hiramatsu attended the art academy of Karlsruhe to study with Marcel van Eeden from 2016 to 2019. In his artistic work, painting and drawing develop organically, they become mutually dependent. His semi- abstract paintings, from which protruding eyes and uncanny, comic or tragic creatures gaze back at the spectator, are “narrative” only at first glance. Actually, they reflect the process, the concrete, factual quality of a painting, that always presents itself as an object with sculptural qualities, too.„⁣

Please swipe left and surf through a selection of Nika Fontaine's @nikafontaine wonderful metal reliefs made from embossed aluminium. On view until 19th of December at the gallery.

The heart of Fontaine’s work centers around the exploration of spirituality, identity, transformation and healing. Fontaine’s artfully embossed metal reliefs, which are inspired by fables appearing in the Zohar and the Bhagavad Gita, resemble recreations of historic artefacts; others are related to the concept of fear as an obstacle for spiritual development.
Each of the embossed metal plates reflect the specific sites, characters and landscapes portraying found in those ancient narratives, exploring notions of theological and psychological concepts that give way to near-cosmic abstraction. In alchemist theory, the transformation of non-noble metals into the so-called philosopher’s stone, which in turn can be used to craft gold, embodies the principle of transmutation, of healing and catharsis, as well as inner refinement.

„The subtle qualities of the embossings serve as a beautiful metaphor for the knowledge which awaits to be revealed. There is no addition nor subtraction in the medium, only the trace of the spirit acting on matter. As light embraces the surface what is convex or concave merge in a single form. Being reversible, the works speak of: As above so below, as below so above." - Nika Fontaine.

Now on view in our solo exhibition 'F.E.A.R: False Evidence Appearing Real' by Nika Fontaine @nikafontaine 🔮

Artist Nika Fontaine presents a wide range of artistic and creative practices, that ranges from classical epic figurative oil painting, to the use of glitter pigments on canvas to create pop colorfield painting as well as beautifully crafted ceramic figures and delicate metal plates with engraved stories, blending her own biography with historical and mystical narratives.

"Through craftsmanship, I spiritualize matter and materialize the metaphysical in works that express concepts of mindfulness and emancipation. I source my inspiration primarily in antique and modern spiritual philosophies & techniques which I study and practice such as Kabbalah, Hermetism, lucid dreaming, vipassana meditation, 12 steps fellowships, Kundalini yoga. The timelessness and abilities to break behavior patterns of judgment and self/destruction are what make these ancient philosophies relevant nowadays. This quest for the sublime result in a proactive celebration of the body, mind, and soul manifested for the quintessential fulfillment of all. My art should be used as a vehicle to grow and transport oneself to new realms of understanding and sensorial acuteness. I like to consider my path as a parent of alchemical endeavors and witness of an initiatic way."
- Nika Fontaine.

Nika Fontaine's 'F.E.A.R: False Evidence Appearing Real' is
on view until December 19 at the gallery. We're open from Wednesday to Saturday, from 12 to 6pm.

We invite you to Tenki Hiramatsu's @tenkihiramatsu first solo exhibition 'Lügen haben Beine' at the gallery.

"One can never be never sure whether Hiramatsu’s creatures are still in the process of becoming or whether they are already withering, fading, being brushed away.
What exactly are they looking for in the surprisingly romantic landscapes that surround them?
Hiramatsu, too, is creating a visionary, new, outsider-like world in which nature, the history of painting and reflections of the human psyche merge. Some of Hiramatsu’s characters simply dissolve in lines, streaks and knots, as if having lost all of their vigor, like Vavoom, the faceless Eskimo boy from Felix the Cat, drawn by Raymond Pettibon for decades — a greatly influential artist for Hiramatsu’s work.
Underneath the fur hood of his snowsuit he blurts out heart-stopping, powerful cries, that echo “VAVOOM!” across vast arctic planes, and that — in Pettibon’s body of work — are directed towards the USA. In his later work the character doesn’t emit sound waves anymore, but wonky meth-like crystals, instead.

- Passage from the exhibition text by Oliver Koerner von Gustorf.

TENKI HIRAMATSU: Lügen haben Beine. The show runs through 19 December 2020. Come by the gallery from Wednesday to Saturday, 12 to 6 pm.

We are delighted ⠀
to share images of our current solo exhibition ⠀
with the young Canadian artist Nika Fontaine.

The title 'F.E.A.R.: False Evidence Appearing Real' ⠀
is an acronym for self-generated fear. Fontaine’s work, ⠀
who was born in Montreal in 1985 and has lived in Berlin since 2008, deals with the exploration of identity, spirituality, transformation and healing. ⠀

The exhibition features Fontaine‘s spiritistic-cosmic glitter paintings from her 'Akasha' series (2017) of acrylic paint and glitter on canvas, a series of monumental earthenware pottery works 'Banishing Fears' that were created between 2019 and 2020 as well as Fontaine’s artfully embossed metal reliefs which are inspired by fables appearing in the Zohar and the Bhagavad Gita. ⠀

“By means of my craftswomanship I spiritualize matter and materialize the metaphysical” (Nika Fontaine).⠀

'F.E.A.R: False Evidence Appearing Real' is the first solo show of Nika Fontaine at our gallery. Now on view until December 19.
Join us from Wednesday to Saturday, from 12 to 6pm 🌌 🔮 🌙

"Fontaine’s artfully embossed metal reliefs, which are inspired by fables appearing in the Zohar and the Bhagavad Gita, resemble recreations of historic artefacts. Her work cycles are often preceded by profound contemplations of spiritual traditions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Christian and Jewish mysticism, alchemy, theosophy, folk art, or so-called “outsider art”. In her art, archetypal symbolism, medieval imagery, nods to abstract and post war-modernism meet at eye level with the aesthetic vocabulary of glam rock, gothic, dark metal, new wave, as well as the retro styles of 1970s and 1980s sci-fi, fantasy and horror flicks."

- Passage from the exhibition text by Oliver Koerner von Gustorf.

The exhibition features fourteen embossed aluminium works by Fontaine, some of them are illustrations from the Zohar,
the book of revelation from Kabbalah, others are related to the concept of fear as an obstacle to spiritual development.
The image shows the work 'The tower of precious stones Shlach Lecha', an illustration from the Zohar. The unrighteous will be in fear of the righteous blinded by the light.

Tenki Hiramatsu's @tenkihiramatsu
first solo exhibition 'Lügen haben Beine' is now on view at the gallery until
19 December, 2020 ✨

"At first sight, Tenki Hiramatsu’s paintings, semi-abstract, colorful and vibrant, frequently streaked with hues of nocturnal brown or black may resemble a cosmos full of sylvan spirits and therianthropes. However, the fantastical creatures populating Hiramatsu’s paintings appear even more rudimentary and subtle: with delicate brush strokes they are often times drawn, rather than painted. His creatures appear more illustrative than their modernist counterparts, such as in Louder than everything else, faster than everything else (2020).

Here, they slightly resemble the Moomins, the hippo-esque trolls created by the Swedish-Finnish author Tove Jansson in the late 1940s."

- Passage from the exhibition text by Oliver Koerner von Gustorf.

Louder than everything else, faster than everything else (2020) is now on view in our gallery. Visit us from Wednesday - Saturday, 12-6pm.

On view from November 7 - December 19, 2020.

F.E.A.R: False Evidence Appearing Real, the title of Nika Fontaine's @nikafontaine first solo exhibition at the gallery, is an acronym for self-generated fear. At the heart of Fontaine’s work, who was born in Montreal in 1985 and has lived in Berlin since 2008, is the exploration of identity, spirituality, transformation and healing. Fontaine's own transition from man to woman, which began in 2014, also plays a decisive role - as a motif of permanent internal and external change.

Her work cycles are often preceded by intensive preoccupation with spiritual traditions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Christian and Jewish mysticism, alchemy, theosophy, folk art or “outsider art”.

In Fontaine's paintings, sculptures and installations, the spiritual experience is combined with pop cultural experience and a radical questioning of art-historical and social hierarchies. Archetypal symbolism, medieval motifs, references to abstract modernism and post-war modernity meet the aesthetic vocabulary of glam rock, gothic, dark metal, new wave, the retro style of sci-fi, fantasy and horror films of the 1970s and 1980s.
