Adam Gallery is delighted to present a new show of Alf LÃ¶hr’s recent work. The work shows the distinctive fusion of elegant brushwork and extraordinary use of colour inspired by his recent travels particularly India, rural Australia and Spain.
Born in Germany in 1957, Alf LÃ¶hr studied at the Kunstakademie DÃ¼sseldorf and completed a PhD at the Royal College of Art, London. Having spent periods teaching, researching and working in New York, Australia and Glasgow â to name a few â he has chosen London to be his home for the last twenty-five years. In the early 1990s, LÃ¶hr has focussed on producing small watercolours but since has gained in scope until producing large-scale works on paper and canvas.
LÃ¶hr’s work is ethereal. There is no obvious brush stroke, nor a repertoire style, so that every painting is unique. At the same time, decision making and control are apparent as a nature-like gesture where splashes and marks come alive, encompassing an ‘essence’. This never fails to surprise the viewer with vitality and constant dynamism. Flows of ink are caught in mid-air on a canvas, creating the rhythm of moving water or wind as parallel forces that are in motion.
