Nicole Baumfalk

"Watchlist I/2019"

Vernissage on February 7, 6 - 9 pm
Duration of exhibition: February 8 - March 29, 2019

The artist Nicole Baumfalk completed her master studies with Prof. Johannes Spehr in Kassel in 2018 and opened her "watch list" for 2019 with her eye-catching motifs. With her still lifes she creates a balance between kitsch and tradition and lets the genre flourish again. The paintings of motionless objects, which were reserved for the authorities in the 17th century, are brought back to them in bright colors and in the technique of the Old Masters. She questions the taste of the beholder in the extraordinary motifs. Artificial flowers from discounters, finds from flea markets, plastic vases in piercing colors and in between animals from the comic book. All this is possible colorful and gaudy in their work again. With her noble kitsch she sticks to a tradition that has not lost her fascination yet.
