Hiroyuki Masuyama 2024

Hiroyuki Masuyama 2024

In 2024 we celebrate Caspar David Friedrich's 250th birthday. Many contemporary artists have explored this great role model, but probably none as intensively as Hiroyuki Masuyama. Consequently, Masuyama is in great demand this year: he is exhibiting at the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the Bundesrat, the Alte Nationalgalerie and the Pommersches Landesmuseum in Friedrich's native city of Greifswald. And of course with us!

Die Lebensstufen (nach C.D.Friedrich, 1835), 2023, LED Lightbox, 72 x 94 x 4 cm, Edition 5 + 2 AP, 15000 Euro

Hamburger Kunsthalle, 15.12.2023 - 1.4.2024
Rothamel Gallery at the Art Karlsruhe, 22-25 February 2024
Old National Gallery, 14 April 2024 - 4 August 2024
German Federal Council, 21 March - 21 June 2024
Rothamel Gallery Frankfurt, 6 December 2024 to January 2025
 
Hiroyuki Masuyama focuses on space and time. He condenses their presence and flow into overwhelming yet subtle works.
 
For Masuyama, art is a great adventure and freedom beyond all restrictions of space and time: he shows us places where all seasons prevail at the same time. He proves that you can see something from all sides at the same time. He cycles through an entire year in one minute and lets us float freely in space.


Das große Gehege (after C.D. Friedrich, 1832), 2016, diasec/led lightbox, edition 5, 73,5 x 102,5 x 4 cm, 12.000 Euro

A whole series of time travels leads Masuyama to Caspar David Friedrich. Masuyama recomposed the works of the great Romantic artist from hundreds of photographic images and allows us to experience their fascination anew in a contemporary form.
 
"The temporal levels merged in this way emphasise once again: art only ever has one present. It is the one in which thinking about it takes place." Michael Freitag

Art Karlsruhe 2024

Galerie Rothamel - Art Karlsruhe 2024
February 22 - 24, 2024

Hall 1 / A 24 and sculpture square Hall 1 / B26 
Karlsruhe Trade Fair Center, Messeallee 1, 76287 Rheinstetten, Germany
Preview on Wednesday, February 21 from 2 to 7 pm.
Thursday to Saturday: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sunday: 11 am to 6 pm.

The longing for stories is back. For us, the current edition of Art KA 2024 is all about narrative, storytelling art: painting, photography, sculpture and ceramics. All of the artists presented are masters of the means of their respective medium and convey substantial content in their works. The narratives are extraordinarily multifaceted, reach deep into art history and are at the same time highly topical. 

Soloshow
Moritz Götze

Ordnung und Disziplin (Rostocker Pappe) 2022, Mischtechnik auf botanischer Wandtafel, 81 x 67,5 cm, 3200 Euro

Götze describes his art as German Pop and dates its roots back to the Humanist art of the 16th century. He has created one of the most extensive artistic
oeuvre of our time: Paintings, architectural artworks, enamels, mosaics, sculptures, objects, drawings and graphics.
He created new screen printing techniques and renewed contemporary enamel painting.

Sculpture Square
Grita Götze

Tageszeiten, 2022, Engobemalerei, Hohe 50 cm, 6000 Euro

Grita Götze creates ceramics whose quality confidently transcends the boundaries of applied art: her painting is virtuoso, her technical perfection enormous. Works by the artist can be found in collections such as the August Kaestner Museum in Hanover, the Badisches Landesmuseum in Karlsruhe, the Kunstmuseum Moritzburg in Halle, the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin and the Museum Ludwig.

"Anyone who wants to experience how beauty and the image of nature can mutually enhance each other in the artistic object will find fascinating visual models in Grita Götze's ceramic works. With the gesture of the self-evident, usability and decoration, vessel form and ornament are in perfect harmony in these objects."

Karin Thomas

The artist works on these vessels for weeks. They are the visible luxury of time at rest. Self-will and an astonishing degree of mastery are her unique selling points. There is no squinting to the side. This is a splendor that does not care in the least about concepts, trends, innovations and all the other current affairs.

Hiroyuki Masuyama


Die Lebensstufen (nach C.D.Friedrich, 1835), 2023, LED Lightbox, 72 x 94 x 4 cm, Auflage 5 + 2 AP, 15000 Euro

Dana Meyer

Dana Meyer's "South Pacific Expedition" has already lasted several years. To date, it has yielded a rich collection of fictitious metal insects, which the artist classifies, stores in antiquated jars and labels neatly. She lists numerous South Sea islands as the places where she found them, dating them to the first decade of the twentieth century. 

Nguyen Xuan Huy


Vera, 2023, Öl auf Leinwand, 207 x 147 cm, 24.800 Euro

One of the most exciting positions in contemporary painting is represented by a man born in Hanoi. His works are nothing less than a proposal for a new European art. He often makes his statements in the form of mythological, philosophical or literary parables. Transcending the avant-garde, he builds a bridge from classical European art to the visual culture of the present. His paintings are cultivated and at the same time unsparing analyses of the current state of our continent and its inhabitants.

Nguyen Xuan Huy was born in 1976. He studied at the Hanoi School of Architecture, at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Bordeaux and received his diploma in painting at the HfKD Burg Giebichenstein in Halle in 2003. He lives and works in Berlin.

Thitz

London Utopian Tower Bridge, 2021, Acryl und Tüten auf Leinwand, 120 x 180 cm, 16500 Euro

"Bags and acrylic on canvas" is how Thitz describes the material structure of his paintings. Vivid, tangible, immediate testimonies to a world steaming with vitality. "If you really want to paint big cities, you must not depict an imaginary city, but try to paint the perceived experience itself, with all the noises, noise, dust and smells. An infinite amount of information fits into one second of a city - I mean this city, these are my inner images," Thitz postulates.

Move to Fahrgasse 17

Move to Fahrgasse 17


Dear friends, ladies and gentlemen,

We wish you all the best, happiness, health and wonderful art experiences for the new year 2024!


 a few meters to the left

We are starting with a move. Our Frankfurt gallery is relocating from Fahrgasse 17 to Fahrgasse 17, so in the future you will find us a few meters to the left in the same building. And thus - as the longest-serving gallery - we will remain on this special street.

Since the opening of our Frankfurt branch in 2005, eight other colleagues have settled in Fahrgasse, with whom we are on good terms. We organize the vernissages together. In our wake, a number of restaurants have moved into the small street. It's a great place to stroll between the Museum of Modern Art and the banks of the Main. The Schirn and Kunstverein are just around the corner, the Städel is just a short walk away.

We are glad to be able to stay a little longer in this biotope. In the new space we will open an exhibition of wonderful works by Jörg Ernert. We cordially invite you and your friends to the opening with the artist on January 19, 2024 at 7 pm!

Luxembourg Art Week Review

Luxembourg Art Week Review

The Luxembourg Art Week took place from November 10 to 12, 2023 - a large and elegant art window in temporary exhibition architecture on the Glacis square (Fouerplaatz) on the edge of the historic old town. The numerous events and forums were attended by a large, colorful, relaxed, interested and high-profile audience, including the Head of State, Grand Duke Henri of Nassau.

We presented a solo show with works by Nguyen Xuan Huy. His paintings build a bridge from 19th century art to 21st century imagery, and the response was overwhelming - both from established collectors and young visitors. The two large formats on display went into an established Belgian collection, while several smaller works went to private collectors.

Ahrenshoop on the Fischland-Darß peninsula has been and still is a place of relaxation and inspiration for Halle's artists for a hundred years. Halle am Meer presents for the first time in a large panorama the
