Virginie Bailly  
LICHTUNG
Painting 

Artist Virginie Bailly is showing new paintings in her second show at Galerie Straihammer & Seidenschwann, created under the influence of Mannerist painters such as El Greco, Di Volterra, and Pontormo. She is fascinated by the colorful light contrasts of these painters, but is also coping with an initial rejection of the Mannerist style.

Contemporary sources of inspiration are equally prevalent in Bailly’s painting, including images of war-torn areas of the Ukraine, of earthquakes, typhoons, and terrorist attacks. And just like Michelangelo Antonioni, who films a building exploding in the desert from various angles in slow-motion, thus imbuing the catastrophic moment with an aesthetic and picturesque feel, Bailly uses filters to “pixelate” her images. 

And so we see that abstract painting must by no means be apolitical.

Hans Lankes 
LICHT UND SCHATTEN
Knife Cuts

 

Hans Lankes is fascinated by space and spaces, light and shadow. He transposes architectural motifs into abstract structures. He creates highly aesthetic delicate filigree images using an exceptionally fine cutting technique, toying with optical illusion and broken perspectives.

By utilizing the parameters of painting and drawing, yet extending them into the room, Lankes creates pieces of art that are on the cusp between graphic design and sculpture. These objects cast shadows on the wall. Not, as expected, in black or dark grey, but instead in different shades of red, or even brilliant green. PARNASS Art Magazine writes: “The delicate cuts of the knife seem to hover on a pillow of colored light.”
