Embodying Colour Outtakes

Michael Post, Heiner Thiel, Peter Weber.

Gallery Charlotte Jackson Fine Art, Santa Fe Opening: 28.07.2023 18 pm

The successful exhibition series embodying color is curated by the artists Michael Post and Heiner Thiel. It started in Wiesbaden in 2013. Exhibitions followed in Zurich (2014) and in Budapest (2015), as well as in Koblenz and Soest (2019).

The exhibits are representative of a cross-generational and constantly reformulated phenomenon of our perception, in view of bodies appearing in color in art. References to cross-cultural and historical references can be found in the concrete art of Europe as well as in American minimalism.

The current works position themselves, so to speak, in an almost magical certainty of paradoxical manifestations that lie somewhere between two-dimensional and three-dimensional order in aesthetic space.

Post and Thiel have come to know and appreciate their artist colleagues and their works in the context of many travels and exhibition activities in Europe and the USA. They have made their selection in order to make the agreements of a similar way of thinking just as visible as the artistic findings based on highly individual working methods.

A comprehensive publication accompanying the exhibition documents these journeys since 2003 and the encounters with their colleagues in a wide variety of landscapes, cities, and studios. In a narrative text, accompanied by several photographs, mainly atmospheric encounters, episodes and life circumstances are presented.
