Thomas Dillmann // MAS PALMAS
MAS PALMAS – Thomas Dillmann’s fascinating imagery carries us away to the landscapes and urban settings of the south.
In this new series Dillmann again composes accurate, complex and detailed scenes, preferably of apparently unspectacular locations and, typically for the Hanover-based artist’s work, free of unnecessary gestures. Although they appear to be photorealistic, the paintings evade apprehension. And despite their surface ‘beauty’ they prompt a certain unease, while allowing a reflective view of our world.
It has taken almost five years for us to be able to present a solo exhibition of Thomas Dillmann’s canvases once again. This won’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with his work, and above all with his way of working. Dillmann has entitled his new show »MAS PALMAS« (More Palms) – a promising mixture of two place names from his expedition to Gran Canaria.
Sunday, April 24, 2022, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Thomas Dillmann and OUT-LOOK artist Sebastian Menzke will attend the opening.
Works influenced by street art and pop culture by the Berlin-based artist Sebastian Menzke are on show in the OUT-LOOK space parallel to Thomas Dillmann’s exhibition. Menzke’s works are partially figurative but for the most part abstract, and combine a modern media-image repertoire with art-historical references. In this exhibition of paintings aspiring to three-dimensionality, Menzke makes contemporary use of methods such egg tempera. His epoxy-resin objects are built up additively, like collages, so that every layer casts its shadow onto the one below to produce an overall image. The transparency of the material gives the objects a floating quality and a fascinating spatiality.
