Benjamin Burkard

Benjamin Burkard's painting is a colorful interplay of several temporal levels in one picture, which find a balance through figuration and abstraction on the background of often golden, copper or silver nuances.
His painting is narrative and is inspired by the simultaneity of history, which is experiencing a renaissance in its own narrative through the digitalization of social media.

In 2022, Benjamin Burkard began to integrate a form of pixel art into his complex, painterly compositions for the first time. These constructed square color fields not only seem inspired by the early 8 - 16 bit pixel graphics, which experienced a rapid upswing from the 1990s onwards, but also seamlessly connect to the pointillism of the 1920s in terms of painting, and develop an interesting antagonistic component to Burkard's classical painting. For while free painting appears as unrestrained and open as possible in its strokes, PixelArt is a concentrated play with limited surface (storage space) and poses an open question, as it were, about the veracity of the figurative and the colorful in his paintings.

The pixel art translated from the digital into the analog confuses the viewer's reading of Burkard's narrative paintings: For the artist does not hide the fact that the center of a gaze can be a simulation of a game, thus opening up the discussion to the veracity or digital existence of what surrounds it. What is a game and what only pretends to be a game?
Analog and digital exist in Burkard's universe parallel to the point of coexistence and add an exciting, further element to Burkard's masterful painting.

Ralf Koenemann

Ralf Koenemann, originally from Essen, is renowned for his large-scale paintings and distinctive drip-drop technique, which imbues his creations with textured depth. Utilizing a mixed media approach, Koenemann seamlessly integrates materials such as oil, varnish, turpentine, and tar, allowing them to flow freely across the canvas and imbue his motifs with dynamic energy. While the artist has carved a niche for himself with his captivating animal themes, he also delves into alternative subjects such as nature and humanity.

Koenemann's animal portrayals possess a monumental quality that truly comes to life when viewed from a distance. His expansive canvases command attention, serving as captivating focal points. His smaller works exhibit a camera-like intimacy, enveloping the viewer in the emotional essence of the depicted creatures.
