Dietmar Brixy

Dietmar Brixy visibly refines his Discover paintings. The lush, richly corporeal material experience that oscillated between figuration and abstraction the year before gives way to ‘speaking’ fields of colour. In his new autumn show, ‘Achtung Brixy’, the artist guides the spectator to a sublime and intense art-viewing experience. Fitting the bill perfectly are two guest appearances by Lothar Seruset, sculptor in wood, and Marion Eichmann, creator of collages and objects, who join him for the show; again both artists from Tammen & Partner, Berlin.

» His paintings prove to be windows not on the world, but on other paintings and the paintings of others. (…) Like microscopes, they show selected details up close and at a distance; they combine fragments, painting methods, and materials, and they observe physical principles and mechanical effects. «
