Marco Casentini

Marco Casentini explores in his work spatial dynamics of color, texture and shape. He is inspired by designs of urban space and reflects geometrical and architectural questions. By decoding environments and urban structures that he perceives immediately, he deconstructs and interprets designs of architects, engineers and town planners. Casentinis use of radiant, bright or strong colors is stimulated by southern Californian or Mexican paintings of houses and dematerializes their architectural surfaces.

Stefan Faas

The highly polished surface of the mirrored steel gives the sculptures of Stefan Faas an additional, significant dimension. In addition to the form of the piece and its relation to the space around it, now reflection comes into play. The viewer and everything else around the piece is mirrored in the gleaming surface, becoming a part of the art itself. In a certain derived sense, it’s a reflection about one’s own identity: who am I, and how do I as an individual relate to the rest of society? This depth of content stands in dialogue with the consistency of form, making the works of Stefan Faas into highly sought-after works of art with a timeless aesthetic. Quickly walking by them, all the figures appear to share a similar, an- thropomorphic appearance, but upon closer observation of the sculptures, very different personas begin to emer- ge. Recognizing the details requires a considerable degree of engagement on the part of the viewer, of course, in which case each perceiver will take in a different, unique range of experiences.

Roland Helmer

Since the 60s, Roland Helmer develops his constructive and concrete work with the utmost consequence. His abstract-geometric early work shows clear forms, quiet areas and is limited to a maximum of 7 or 8 bright colors. The variety of shapes is reduced in later work on narrow and wide lines in a vertical and horizontal screen layout. The color palette expands on certain issues by blends and underpainting with white and black.

Ralf Schmerberg

Ralf Schmerberg’s artistic practice explores the boundaries of society, continuously expanding and redefining them. Looking closely at those around him, his photographs enter the various layers of humanitas to conjure up new emotional spaces. Schmerberg acts on impulse, rejecting the idea of staged or carefully constructed compositions in favour of intuitive moments that are given form in an image. A searcher by nature, Schmerberg uses art as a tool to pursue his spiritual quest. This perpetual process of seeking and finding is ultimately what he documents in his works.
