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

Back to nature
The main thing of Daniel Mohr’s (born in 1976) paintings is painting itself. These pictures do not intend any political aims, social critique or narrative structures. They are painted plainly and herein Mohr takes up with his teacher Baselitz. Painting as a perceived reality, not as abstract relations of colour.
Their subjects, horizontal strand panoramas, bathing scenes in narrow public swimming pools, the view over the waterfront onto the sea’s sun-shimmering, which resolves figures and strand into each other or a view roaming low above the beach, they all let any narration step back. This reduced variety of themes emphasizes painting even more richly.
