To mark the opening of the gallery, from the 17/11/2007 we are showing
work from Klaus Geigle, Alexandra Medilanski and Angelika J. Trojnarski.
The painter Klaus Geigle's representational pictures revolve around
one of paintings classical themes, transience. The source of Geigle's
pictorial inspiration is for the most part his own surroundings, which
he investigates through painting in series. In so doing, time and
again his scenic large formats acquire a background humour, which
encrypts a further interpretation into the chosen subject.
Sober casualness in the choice of motif can also be found in the painterly
inclinations of the artist Alexandra Medilanski. She masters the painting
challenges resulting from her subjects with great accomplishment,
usually in one go. The works created in this way, which have a consistent
handwriting throughout, reflect scenes which seem to have been borrowed
from her private surroundings and play with the tension between closeness
With her most recent works Angelika J. Trojnarski comes close to scenes
of nightmarish violence and destruction. Her painterly approach is
characterised by her highly varied use of colour. With the unusual
textual flow springing from within the series of pictures, she pulls
the observer into her painterly point of view.
