Volker Hermes

/ 11
Photographs: Matthias Schwarze
The supposedly out-fashioned subject of seascapes is in the center of Volker Hermes' latest work. The artist, masterclass student of Dieter Krieg at the Dusseldorf Kunstakademie, uses the confrontation with the historic masterpieces to study dynamics and surface textures of classical painting and to develope contemporary interpretations of those classic, everlasting motives. The large-scale pieces, worked with edding and acryl on canvas, transform oil painting into dynamical, unexpectedly powerful drawings – opening up new possibilities for both contemporary drawing and painting.

Opening: 22/09/2012 7:00 pm - Volker Hermes is present.

Finissage: 19/10/2012 7:00 pm
