Dr. Marc Cremer-Thursby speech, Figuratum durch Abstractum III 09/2022

Our “Figuratum durch Abstractum” series continues this year. “There is no such thing as abstract art. You always have to start with something. After that, you can remove all traces of reality”, as Pablo Picasso once put it. Contemporary painting encompasses abstract as well as figurative elements and many artists from the 20th century to the present day have shown that the boundary between figuration and abstraction was much more permeable than thought. With this group exhibition at Pashmin Art Gallery Hamburg, we would like to present four international artists whose artworks illustrate the enormous interaction between figuration and abstraction. As a special highlight of the evening, we will offer culinary and musical specialties to round off the vernissage on many sensory levels.

Parviz Tehrani

“Art has become my home” – this is how the Persian artist, who lives in Germany, describes his creative cosmos. It is the thoughts in the inner chaos that mix with distorted visions of the future from nightmares and seek their way with pigment ink on light-resistant high-tech paper. For Parviz Tehrani, it is quite clear that our current world needs the splendor of colors to be able to muster the strength for peace.

Justyna Wojtas

The works of the Polish artist draw the viewer into an energetic spell through their powerful worlds of color. Justyna Wojtas paints large panoramic pictures that specifically hit the language centre of our soul, sometimes calming and often animating. Justyna Wojtas lives and organizes original exhibitions in Poland and abroad.

Frank Wohlrab

Dot by dot, artist Frank Wohlrab creates his artwork to give the viewer an inner time-out and a meditative moment. The dot painting Frank Wohlrab has learned in the many years he has lived with indigenous people of Australia, and also developed a new awareness to perceive the world, from which his inspiring art form was created.

Werner Nieuwoudt

Belgium, Japan, South Africa….- Our artist and globetrotter Werner Nieuwoudt incorporates the stations of his life into his conceptualisations and uses his works to promote a dialogue of perspectives that focuses on human interaction with art and its perception. To provide a platform for other emerging artists, Werner Nieuwoudt founded a public art initiative called the Secret Art Society.
