Art Karlsruhe – Galerie Dorothea van der Koelen

The time has come: our booth construction is finally finished and the Art Karlsruhe fair has opened its doors to the interested art public. As always, we present masterpieces of established international top artists at our booth and we are looking forward to welcome you in Hall 2 Booth E13. See you there.


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 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 value 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.

Wulf Kirschner, who describes the world and its perception in his very own way with his poetic steel lettering pictures.

Nam Tchun-Mo, the Korean from the monochrome movement of his country, presents a typical beam picture in rich red, as well as a dynamic Spring work in beige and another Beam in green.

Mario Reis, who allows the momentum of elemental forces – like fire, water or kinetic energy – to play an active part in the creative process of his artworks using a variety of media. In 2023, he celebrated his 70. Anniversary with a large retrospective entitled Mario Reis and the Elements in the Cadoro – Center for Art and Science in Mainz.

Reinhard Roy, who uses “dot as a design tool to depict spatial effects on the surface”.

Turi Simeti, the Italian ZERO artist who died of Covid in 2021, shows his Ovali in various colors, including a rare green work.

Günther Uecker, whose transformation of painterly actions into pictorial objects through the use of nail structures made a groundbreaking contribution to the development of art after 1945.

Guang Yao Wu, whose understanding of art is constituted at the interface between Western art tradition and Far Eastern ideas.
