KALEIDOSCOPE is a refuge of fantasy, where patterns mutate and dance to the will of the spectator. In this exhibition, we want to present the work of four artists who explore, in their own way, the unexpected interactions between colour, texture and volume. As these merge, they create an unexpected interaction, taking the playfulness of a child into the complexity of an adult.
Martin Gerstenberger breaks down the conventional rules and reassembles them in a unique way. He crosses the style borders with his works to create a new and exciting kind of aesthetic . His bold use of materials and colors creates a naive yet surrealistic interaction between the collages and objects.
Katharina Kleinfeld’s sculptural work focuses on the exploration of materials and their impact on the space surrounding them. In our selection of works, the artist takes written sheets of paper and transforms them. Her works delivers something more than expected of these objects: volume, expression and meaning beyond the written word.
Kurihara transfers street art into paintings in an alluring manner. Combining both the Asian and European artistic languages in his artwork, he successfully makes it into his own expression. In his paintings and drawings, Kurihara investigates the human universe through delicate lines and colors.
Jussi Jääskeläinen mixes themes as much as he mixes techniques. He often blends animalistic figures with objects in a psychedelic composition through his use of colour and expression. The watercolours give the notion that the spectator is contemplating a smoky dream, and the intense lines give volume to these fantastic creatures and forms.]
In this exhibition, we want to present the works of four artists – Kurihara (JP), Katharina Kleinfeld (DE), Martin Gerstenberger (DE) and Jussi Jääskeläinen (FI) – who explore, in their own way, the unexpected bond between colour, texture and volume. As these merge, they create a peculiar interaction, taking the playfulness of a child into the complexity of an adult. KALEIDOSCOPE is a refuge of fantasy, where patterns and objects mutate and redefine to the will of the spectator.
Kurihara combines his Asian heritage with the European artistic language and explores our human universe in his paintings and drawings through lines and colours. Katharina Kleinfeld’s paper sculptures explore the boundaries between matter and imagination, and investigate space, transitions, interaction, repetition and rhythm. Martin Gerstenberger incorporates street art into drawings and sculptures recalling the playfulness and naivety in every adult. Jussi Jääskeläinen creates vibrant, contrasty compositions, inspired by nature. Meet our vibrant talented artists and follow their art journey like Alice curiously followed the rabbit down the hole in Lewis Carroll’s story.
