Moving faster than a cloud, slower than a car, silently witnessing landscape within, speaking, like the soft howling of the wind in canyons, or sand dunes in the South West of the US, racing across German highways towards destinations, that are already extistent within ourselves, exploring natures light speed and slow decay. Where will we be heading next, already being there, juxtaposing different perceptions, layered in oil on canvas, or stretched on paper for a dialogue on difference, within sameness? What would nature say, watching us?
MAX DUNLOP is an American painter living in Berlin. His work is about the world we live in, the history of art and the physical act of painting itself. The paintings are about the moment brush stokes become an image, these marks must be assembled within the mind of the viewer. They are pulled into an interaction with the materials and an interaction with the subject matter. http://www.maxdunlopart.com
KLAUS HU works with painting and photography that penetrate and complement each other, questioning representation and its cultural codes. He had been invited for a residency at Santa Fe Art Institute, New Mexico, USA in 2013 focusing on the Anthropocene in general, and on landscape, mining, uranium mining, water rights and property in the South West of the USA in detail.
