The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Gerhard Labudda

Wabi — Pictures of silence
This book of photographs by Gerhard Labudda presents nature from a strikingly individual viewpoint: here, photography meets painting. Labudda’s studies of nature are assured pictorial sketches of a fascinating range of motifs.
His camera work adheres to the strict aesthetics of WABI philosophy, the Japanese language of form. This rediscovery of simplicity provides the viewer with an extraordinary visual experience.
Impressive views of protected natural areas in the north of Hamburg are juxtaposed with detailed studies of natural structures; associations with modern art are unavoidable. Colours and forms, pictures from a distant world, transform concrete and familiar objects into cosmic and metaphysical dimensions merging the pictures into a sensual experience.
