Represented by Galerie Ernst Hilger

Upcoming:

OBSCURE THINGS AND THE SUN, Galerie Ernst Hilger (SOLO), 22. November 2022 - 13. January 2023
Painting is the only way to document and articulate the inner visual reality. For Asgar/Gabriel this reality consists mainly of in-between spaces where the inside and outside merge, people in various stages of physical and mental dissolvement plus "Obscure things and the sun". The visual language of the new series is as striking as the applied techniques. The works take the observer through an art-historical labyrinth full of references and new interpretations, transforming the gallery into an in-between space of its own various timelines, moods and aesthetic universes intertwine. (Jan Gustav Fiedler)
