berlin: 15

© dittrich & schlechtriem

since graduating from berlin's universitat der künste, artist klaus jörres [1973] obviously didn't feel the need to move away from germany's main art hub that is the german capital. an undisputed rising star, his minimalist canvases offer an intriguingly modern dialogue between flickering nuances of white and the analytical clarity of filigree lattice structures. further refining his artistic style, graphic minimalism is taken to an intriguing new level without compromising the alluring rigidity and interplay of lines. what's emphasized is a tension between calculation and contingency, between the visual dynamic of computer-generated templates and the haptical presence of the objects. the artist currently shows a new body of work at dittrich & schlechtriem gallery in berlin. presented at the exhibition simply entitled 15 are six large-size canvases that exemplify the aformentioned artistic transition [on through jun 20]. location: tucholskystrasse 38 [mitte].
