On November 23, 2018, the famous Düsseldorf gallery owner Alfred Schmela would have celebrated his hundredth birthday. To mark this occasion, the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen is organizing an exhibition that shows the wide-ranging network of this “pioneer of the avant-garde.”

Daniel Mohr

Phase Shifting
In his works, the former master pupil of Georg Baselitz, Daniel Mohr, refers compositionally to works by Francisco de Goya or Paul Klee. What sets him apart from the others is the painterly treatment. The motifs – landscapes, parks, or the painter at work in nature - which in everyday scenes tell of seemingly detached worlds, flow between oil painting and watercolour, from  casual transparency to opaque density. Fragmentations and abstract forms overlap the subjects in an incidental or obvious manner, and highlight the methods of painting like alienation effects.
