Art Karlsruhe – Planning of the exhibition booth

In the year of the gallery’s 45th anniversary, which will be celebrated with the poetically beautiful exhibition Visions of Beauty in Mainz and Venice, the Mainz gallerist, publisher and art historian Dr. Dorothea van der Koelen will present aesthetic masterpieces by established top artists of the international avant-garde at Art Karlsruhe 2024.

The OAS (One-Artist-Show)

Lore Bert

This year, the industrious paper artist is prominently represented at the booth of Gallery Dr. Dorothea van der Koelen with nine new pictorial objects. The Mainz-based artist still spends Mainz-based artist still spends hours in her studio every day to realize all the ideas she comes up with for new works of art in her leisure time. Her most recent creations are characterized by her work with the color magenta on the one hand and the creation of Art Deco-like structures on the other.

Characteristic of Lore Bert’s artistic work for more than four decades is her use of Far Eastern papers from Japan, Nepal, Korea and China, which often take on a spatial dimension. The collages, relief-objects, transparencies and sculptures that have been created since the early 1980s, followed shortly afterwards by installations and even entire paper spaces and environments, are evidence of the artist’s interest in material and form, but also in space and environment. Paper is her preferred material.

Constructive forms, geometry, architectural elements, ornaments, numbers and letters form her formal vocabulary, the humanities and natural sciences, the world views of Galileo and Copernicus, philosophical and poetic writings (by Kant, Goethe and Rilke, by Goodman and Quine, by Macchiavelli and Dante), mathematics (Cantor’s set theory) and logical connections (‘truth tables’), abstract properties, universal relations and the absolute in its poetic beauty form the intellectual content of her work. Historical contexts or cultural peculiarities of other countries, which she gets to know through her exhibitions, find their way into her work, are formulated artistically and characterize the global aspect of her work.

Further exhibited artists

Hans Jörg Glattfelder, who expanded the formal repertoire of concrete art with his artwork series Non-Euclidian Metaphors by referring to scientific methods (‘methodical constructivism’).

Mohammed Kazem, who had a highly acclaimed exhibition at the Ludwig Museum in the Deutschherrenhaus in Koblenz in 2023, shows an impressive Sound of the Mist work.
