One another highlight from last weekend’s Drawing Now Parisian fair were some of the works presented by the Berlin-based contemporary drawings gallery Fruehsorge. Ulrich Kochinke pencil on paper drawings occupying big part of the gallery stand space were amongst the most captivating pieces of the event mixing good doses of realism, pop and religious elements in his drawings.
One of the few times his works travel & get exhibited outside Germany for the Gronau-born artist whose catholic theology studies (just before his art studies) play a sometimes perturbing influence on his works.
Large format (almost) life-sized pencil drawings combining holy & profane, spiritual & worldly, old memories and personal impressions in highly coded compositions that examine and question the contradiction of faith and world order.
Even though Drawing Now is over, you can still get to see his works @ the Berlin gallery or until may @ Meißen’s Kunstverein Meissen gallery too. Enjoy the weekend prayers!
