It is with great anticipation that we present the exhibition “MYTHS AND GLITTER – STORIES IN COLOR, GLASS AND METAL”, which brings together fascinating works of art by two renowned artists, the painter Petra Heitkötter and the musical star and painter Ethan Freeman. The two artists have been friends for 25 years.

Petra Heitkötter, a respected painter from Bremen, has presented her works in over 40 solo exhibitions throughout Europe, which can be found in both private and public collections.

Ethan Freeman, an outstanding musical performer with an illustrious career in productions such as “The Phantom of the Opera”, “Cats”, “Jekyll & Hyde” and “Disney’s Aladdin”, is now celebrating his debut as a painter together with Petra Heitkötter at the Pashmin Art Gallery.

Although both artists work in different ways, they have the common goal of transporting the viewer into a world of enchanted tales, surprising and entertaining them.

The exhibition is curated by Natalja Nouri and moderated by Jasmin Eikmeier. The internationally renowned curator Dr. Davood Khazaie will provide insights into the creative processes of Freeman and Heitkötter.

Bremen-based artist Petra Heitkötter works with a variety of materials to create contrasts and design new ensembles. Intense colors such as dramatic red, velvety black and glittering white are transformed into glamorous objects using gold, copper, brass, aluminum and glass. This is unique to her.

The interaction of light and material gives her works a unique dynamic, which can be found in her smallest works as well as in the large-format paintings. Each of her paintings is a testimony to experience, search, versatility and depth.

Ethan Freeman has his studio in Hamburg and has been painting for many years. Now, for the first time, he is making his work accessible to a wider public. His painting, like his stage work, is the telling of a story, now with paint and canvas. While the stage often deals with negative emotions such as hatred and violence, his painting reflects the positive, striving for beauty and joy. He uses vibrant colors and textures and conveys sensual joy. Each painting becomes a narrative. The aim of his paintings is to express beauty, joy, ecstasy and occasionally humor.

Be part of our vernissage event on May 18th at 7 pm, where the artists will be present in person. Ethan Freeman will be accompanied by James Mironchik, who will give a small sample of his musical repertoire.

Don’t miss this extraordinary exhibition that highlights the transformative power of art to evoke emotion, ignite the imagination and transcend boundaries to give joy.
