The season is starting with a group of young artists that attract a soft shock for our aesthetic perception:
Peter Diamond, Max Guther, Lauren Brevner, Anton Hjertstedt, Peter Opheim und Nico Klein-Allermann start where others stop. Welcome to the hynotic rapport.
Peter Diamond’s work owes much of its character to the album covers and self-published comics that were his special focus in art school and the early years after graduation, as well as the punk gig posters of his teenage years.
Max Guther creates collaged worlds where the focus is on architectural details, interiors, and how the human body interacts with the environment around it to convey everyday situations and activities.
Peter Opheim navigates the unruly thicket of themes blending childhood with adulthood – concepts that we ordinarily prefer to keep separate – to unsettling effects.
The composition of Lauren Brevner’s paintings explore mixed-media through the use of oil, acrylic, and resin. This unique technical style is combined with a collage of Japanese chiyogami, yuzen, and washi paper on wooden panels. Her influence originates from the stylistic elements of traditional Japanese art and culture.
Graphic designer Anton Hjertstedt creates the kind of unexpected work we dream of finding.
In Nico Klein-Allermann’s photography merges ordinariness and stories of special encounters. His interest comprises the simple and ordinary, the unchanged truth.
