About this artwork

In his work Florian Rosier deals with the manipulation of perception and the creation of virtual worlds. For that he utilizes the medium of photography and challenges its reputition of absolute objectivity by changing the initial picture into something completely new. His images no longer act as a mere representation of the world around us but instead transform into recordings of the subjective feeling that inhabited the moment they were taken. Their vast emptyness radiates an eerie, eternal silence which forms a strong contrast to the sensual overkill of our everyday life.

Rosier strives for maximum quality, both in the production of the raw material and the photo data as well as in the selection of printing technology and the materials used. With sophisticated details in his work, he knows how to surprise the viewer over and over again.

About this artwork

This peculiar and individual imagery occasionally allows itself to be identified as being set in a certain time period through elements such as the interior design or items of clothing. The works, however, do not symbolize the time period portrayed. They also do not represent a processing of the artist’s emotions, thoughts, or surroundings. Instead the painter looks for inspiration in reproductions, newspapers, history books, and films. Rode primarily uses material from eastern Germany and the eastern European region dated between 1950 and 1990. Usually an idea gathered there is the starting spark for a painting and will be subtly integrated into the work. Political and everyday themes are also not usually covered by Rode. The materials he uses, the objects, and the seemingly typical spatial layout show an alienation in a possibly familiar situation.

Christoph Rode

Christoph Rode (* 1984, Berlin) is a German painter and graphic artist.

Rode’s mostly large format works take on room or landscape situations. They remind the viewer of stage installations and multidimensional scenarios filled with fragmented content.

This peculiar and individual imagery occasionally allows itself to be identified as being set in a certain time period through elements such as the interior design or items of clothing. The works, however, do not symbolize the time period portrayed. They also do not represent a processing of the artist’s emotions, thoughts, or surroundings. Instead the painter looks for inspiration in reproductions, newspapers, history books, and films. He primarily uses material from eastern Germany and the eastern European region dated between 1950 and 1990. Usually an idea gathered there is the starting spark for a painting and will be subtly integrated into the work. Political and everyday themes are also not usually covered by Rode. The materials he uses, the objects, and the seemingly typical spatial layout show an alienation in a possibly familiar situation.

It is the search for a roar of silence within a space.

The smell of old interior and carpets, the feel of old textured wallpaper or fabrics that linger in the memory provide the painter with elements for his scenarios. Rode is fascinated by contrasts in color, form, and content in his paintings, as well as an incomprehensible dialog that can only succeed when open questions remain in the room. Questions, which even the painter cannot answer.

Christian KERA Hinz

Christian Hinz (KERA), born in Berlin in 1985, has been working on colors, printing techniques and facade designs for more than 20 years.
At the same time KERA always found new impulses through his love for haptic and technically things. Especially the interconnection of working with visual language on the computer and the realization on the wall attract the artist. The playground can never be big enough. This combination of digital design and its transfer onto a big wall or canvas is particularly appealing to the artist.

When looking at his artwork one sees a reflection of his Graphic design studies, his passion for geometric lines and spaces as well as him handling spray cans, wall colour and brushes for years.
Colored surfaces and very individual brush strokes are his trademark. Frequently he goes into the depths, plays with perspective composition and the hint of architecture. The restraint on line and surface moves his works close to the pop art of a Jasper John, Robert Indiana or Frank Stella, also known as Hard Edge Painting.
His artwork is abstract but at the same time spatial. Aesthetics and Graphic arts play an important role together.

Konstantin Rosenkranz

The works of Konstantin Rosenkranz reflect an expression of transcendence created by color and its effect on the canvas. Associations to colored lights in a room or to digital worlds are evoked.
For this purpose, the painter treats the color in such a way that it can act on its own and penetrate the observer. He leaves the colors as autonomous as possible, applies them to the canvas and allows them to form into mixtures that are irreversible in the process.
This technique creates different shapes that combine to create a sensitive impression. The process and behavior of the material play a central role.
The unpainted, only primed parts of the canvas convey the infinite and a generous being. The relationship between painted pictorial space and canvas is usually in an aesthetically harmonious relationship to each other. The colors look strong and smooth due to the highly pigmented acrylic lacquers. They enhance the contrast with the matt, white canvas. This modern technique of painting challenges the viewer to find his own association with the works.

OKUDA

Okuda’s distinctive style of geometric harmonies emboldened with intense colours can make his artworks feel like they’re from a parallel universe.

In his work, rainbow geometric architectures blend with organic shapes, bodies without identity, headless animals and symbols that encourage reflection in artistic pieces that could be categorized as Pop Surrealism with a clear essence of street forms. His works often raise questions about existentialism, the universe, the infinite, the meaning of life, and the contradictions of society’s false freedom, showing a conflict between modernity and our roots; ultimately, between man and the same.
