The radically reduced hanging focusses for once on the medium of painting and shows how the artist explores its spectrum between line and plain, form and color. He creates fresh-looking images that contain subtle metaphors for the unutterable.
The works of Jürgen Partenheimer (*1947, Munich, lives in Munich) are characterized by poetic contradictions: as mysterious sign-like settings, they develop a captivating presence and at the same time appear so delicate that any literal definition seems to disturb the fragile equilibrium. Organic or architectural elements, landscapes, still lifes or geological stratifications seem to be suggested, but they always dissolve in a free play of abstract lines, forms and colors that one understands intuitively. Consistent with this constant state of transition represented by his works – between the concrete and the abstract, the articulate and the unutterable, the seen and the sensed – the artist calls his new exhibition at Häusler Contemporary München «Transformation».
