Dietmar Brixy

Plump figs, their trees and their leaves, are just one hallmark of the next series on the theme of the Garden of Eden. 2009 sees the sprouting and flourishing of Brixy’s painterly “Eden” in all its diverse forms, followed by the exhibit of the same name that fall in the Altes Pumpwerk Neckarau.

» The rivers in paradise lend their exotic names to the new series, as do the melodious names of the many fig varieties. (…) We are plunged with all our senses into the world of emotions that the works variously evoke through the lush materiality of the paint itself, striking colour contrasts and bold combinations. «
