I do paint!
18/04 — 19/08/2018
With around 60 paintings and numerous large-format drawings, the retrospective-style exhibition illustrates the artistic cosmos of Arno Rink (1940– 2017).
Sharp contours, exciting colour concepts, painstaking technique, bold composition and with no fear of pathos — this is how we generally envision Arno Rink’s perfect imagery. However, his personal destiny and contemporary events leave traces, including in his work.
The exhibition, which Arno Rink himself worked on, attempts to enable a deeper, more personal insight into his creative work than has been possible thus far. Behind attitude, pride and dignity is concealed a highly-sensitive artist who addresses and processes personal experiences directly in his pictures.
Opening: 17.04.2018, 6 pm
