We invite you to our exhibition opening on October 5th 2016 at 7:00 pm
Galleri Heike Arndt DK, Voigtstrasse 12, 10247 Berlin-Friedrichshain
Dear art lovers!
Galleri Heike Arndt DK is pleased to present ‘Hindsight,’ exhibiting a selection of current and existing works – sculptures by Henry Stöcker (DE) collages by Poul R. Weile (DK) and paintings by Michael Kain (DE). Our choice of title reflects the notion that when exploring a new creative direction, one may not know it until afterwards – as the English saying goes, with the benefit of hindsight.
This idea of retrospect is integral to our exhibition. All three artists having produced work in the context of numerous significant changes in Europe, and have explored a wealth of creative processes. Presenting a journey through multiple directions in artistic expression, ‘Hindsight’ captures experience, reflection and nostalgia.
We are delighted to share this collection of works with you at Galleri Heike Arndt DK. Whether you are an art enthusiast or just want to look around and discover something new, everyone is welcome to join us for our opening on the 5th of October where Poul R. Weile, Michael Kain and Henry Stöcker will be present.
If you are not able to attend the opening event, please do come by during the run of the exhibition until the 29th of October.
Poul R. Weile (DK)
Born in 1954 in Odense, Denmark, is a recognized sculptor and visual artist. Integral to Weile’s practice is his open-minded approach and the fact that he follows no style, which has indeed become his artistic signature.
In his mixed-media collages, Weile creates a weird and wonderful environment for a found image, often an erotic female form. His work bridges the line between kitsch and art, and embodies senses of humour and irony that are incredibly inviting. Weile has a great thirst for knowledge, and an inherent curiosity that still today leads him to push boundaries in his own expression of visual art.
Michael Kain (DE)
Berlin-based abstract painter, with roots in the traditions of classical figurative art. He now creates works comprised of heavy layering of oil paint and demonstrates attentative experimentation with colour and tone. His pieces can be said to reminisce modernist values of pure painting, where there is an honesty in the relationship between the paint and the canvas and no ‘illusory’ storytelling through recognisable figures.
Today, Kain’s work has been exhibited internationally with significant shows in Germany, Denmark, Great Britain and Russia, and he continues to create art through abstract expression.
Henry Stöcker (DE)
Born in 1954 on the island of Rügen, Germany, is a predominantly sculptural artist whose works are significantly influenced by his extensive biological studies at the University of Rostock and fascination with the subject.
The result is a body of work that demonstrates a perfectly balanced dialogue between science and art. Through playful use of form, Stöcker is continually testing the viewer to look for something recognisable, bringing to life biomorphic shapes that may otherwise only be seen under a microscope. Stöcker’s innovative approach to sculpture has won numerous awards throughout his artistic career, and he remains to be a practicing artist in Berlin today.
We are looking forward to your visit to this unique exhibition! You are very welcome to forward or share this invitation with other art enthusiasts.
