Galerie Ludorff hosts the upcoming exhibition which celebrates 15 years of collaboration with Berlin-based Professor of the Hochschule der Bildenden Kunste Klaus Fussmann and highlights the recent five years of his oeuvre. The show "Flowers and Landscapes" presents over 10 oil paintings and over 70 watercolours, of whom many have already been part of the recent solo show at the Museum am Ostwall in Dortmund, Germany.
Already while studying at the Folkwang-School in Essen and the Hochschule fuer Bildende Künste in Berlin Fussmann developed a new figurative style. By painting interieurs, still lifes and mythological scenes the 1938 born made himself a name as one of the important german painters of his generation. Since 1972 he has a second studio in Gelting near the baltic sea, where he works regularly in the summer. There he found what was missing in Berlin: The splendour of nature in its different stages of evolution, which have ever since become an important part of his oeuvre.
Accordingly his work never tries to document or depict nature in a realistic manner, but to show the beauty of nature and its fugacity. The careful and tenseness selection of the works is able to present Fußmann as one of the major figurative german painters of our time, whose unique style of painting is based upon pictorial traditions of german impressionist Lovis Corinth and expressionist Emil Nolde.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an indepth catalogue, that contains 83 colour images and essays by Klaus Fußmann und Tayfun Belgin in german.
