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.

Graham Foster

Out there hiding everywhere. Sculptures and drawings by Graham Foster
Graham Foster is a rare original, a virtually indefinable force. His strange constructions can be seen as both sculpture or wall-based pictures, meditations on morality and virile fertility figures, works of rebellious desperation and self mocking send-ups.
The dynamic symmetry of many of them is reminiscent at the same time of both New Guinea tribal make-up and germ warfare mask design.
Foster moulds the visages that haunt both the beginning and the end of the world. His work is packed with the evocative contradictions that are essential for the creation of art of real depth. Thankfully one can never pinpoint what these works “are about”, what they “mean”. So we are free to dream our extensive interpretations.
