berlin: get out

© schlechtriem & dittrich

the pairing of works by artists stefan behlau and dennis loesch is a true feast of colour and form. both germans are part of dittrich & schlechtriem's stable of artists, and their current collab presentation, somewhat ominously entitled get out, at the aforementioned venue offers quite an exploration. the core is a series of works that have been on display at a show in leipzig late last year, presenting artworks that reflect the artists' respective explorations of the use of colour as a medium, and also the reproducibility of images in digital printing techniques. the pieces on display had been based on existing works by other artists as templates. loesch used the digital colour averages of the extracted calculated from the pixels of photographs, while behlau inverted the colours of his sources. the show in berlin offers a similar dialogue between two interesting and contrasting explorations of colour. while behlau's approach is classic, using paint on canvas, but loesch has crossed over to the tech side and has concocted inkjet prints on aluminum [on through sep 3]. location: tucholskystrasse 38 [mitte].
