COLOURlust - Dusseldorf's Bernd Mechler - first london solo exhibition.

About

Bernd Mechler is known for his abstract, potent colour plays of monumental size.  From early on he had little interest in the representation of reality.  At college he was encouraged to explore his own subjective impressions of reality through painting. 

 This is painting about painting in the tradition of Gerard Richter ‘s grey paintings and the white paintings by Robert Ryman.  Mechler almost empties out the canvas of any objects in order to focus entirely on what he describes as a psychological confrontation with painting.  Much of what feeds his work is extracted from life around him, be it a social event, his teaching, visiting an exhibition or simply taking a walk.  His work is spontaneous and relies on the energy of his senses, emotions, intuition and thoughts as well as his perception of the world around him, all of which filters into his compositions.

Mechler studied at the Kunstakademie, Dusseldorf.
