"Lonely Long Meaningless Way Home: Johannes Kahrs"
2006-11-18 until 2007-02-10
Parasol Unit
London, , UK United Kingdom

Parasol Unit presents "Lonely Long Meaningless Way Home: Johannes Kahrs" from November 18, 2006 through February 10 , 2007. Like countless other post-modern artists, Johannes Kahrs frequently uses found images as a starting point for his work, which he then manipulates according to his needs. Much of Kahrs' subject matter includes human figures and their world, and his final images are provocative, ambiguous and fake, which often distracts the viewer from appreciating their aesthetic quality.

Repeatedly in his work Kahrs confronts us with dramatic imagery or scenes, and as we in some trepidation try to resolve them we realise he has long since obliterated any clues that could help us interpret them.

Kahrs, who works in two different media painting, and pastel and charcoal works on paper gives equal importance to both. While the imagery in his works on paper are usually resolved, the imagery in his paintings seems unresolved and in them change, movement, and therefore three-dimentionality are anticipated. Whatever the outcome, one is certain Kahrs will always have found a way to make it a challenge to read his work.
