Material longings manifested in shiny mirror-like images: Achim Riethmann's new works immediately evoke associations with advertising and showcases. Only on closer inspection do they reveal themselves to be fine watercolor drawings over which lie coated and tinted panes of glass. The exhibition title Gefährten refers to the things the artist surrounds himself with in his everyday life. His fondness for sweets, his headphones, jacket, the expired sneakers, but also a look in the organic waste or on the chipped flowers from his studio backyard represent a source of inspiration and daily companions of the artist.
