Self reflection / Manet's 'Le Déjeuner dans l'Atelier' from 1868

self reflected in Manet's 1896 'Le Dejeuner dans l'Atelier' - photo mfk

Last week I spent a lot of time in museums in Munich and Stuttgart doing research. Mondrian/de Stijl, Cy Twombly, Alex Katz, Isaac Julien's 9-screen-video-installation 'Ten Thousand Waves', Michaël Borremans to name but a few exhibitions, and of course I was with my nose on top of some masters too. Here is proof.

Under the Radar / paintings & drawings

'Man and Horse', 2011, detail - oil on canvas

On march 25th I presented paintings and works on paper at 'Under the Radar' at RufReaktor, an environment for local and international artists, located on the attic of an old brewery in Berlin-Friedrichshain. The evening featured 2 DJ's, 3 bands and 4 artists. I put up a selection of drawings on magazines and some recent paintings that followed out of magazine drawings. Also I put up a big scale painting on paper that I'd done in the fall and that I'd forgotten about until I saw the RufReaktor space. I think it suited the place and the event.
