We are proud to announce our next exhibition of recent works by artist Harald Kröner (*1962) who lives and works in Pforzheim, Germany.

Kroener presents new large format coloured ink drawings from his series ‘Cut’ along with a group of much smaller works titled Schnittzeichnungen (sectional drawings).

Although different in size and appearance – the theme of ‘cutting’ unites both bodies of work. Like the editing process in filmmaking, ‘cut’, is used to generate ‘footage’-like material to be used later and determines what will eventually be seen or not. Kröner’s starting point are two painted sheets of paper: A large backdrop within which a semi-transparent sheet is cut into strips and reversed so both painted sides face one another.

The mirrored painted sides generate a form of osmosis which challenges the artist to discover a new balance between chance and control. Who can know if beauty will (re)appear between the poles of chaos and order. The process allows for little forethought and the results unpredictable – it’s impossible for the artist to envisage what the semi-transparent sheet will produce once flipped. The pieces represent disruption, disorder and chaos that develop into more complex alignments. Kröner is interested in outwitting foresight and challenging the viewer’s perception.

In comparison to the series `Cut´ the small sectional drawings are austere. Most of the pieces contain a single horizontal red line that has been manifolded and subdued by cuts, flips and overlappings. The pieces evoke a desire to look below the surface, to explore with the eyes – to lift the veil. Despite the ostensible simplicity they keep their secret as accomplished visual poems.

With best wishes

Bernhard Knaus & Luigi Kurmann
