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.

Jochen Stenschke

Pictures in Black Boxes
The artist Jochen Stenschke reflects on possibilities, thoughts and feelings through the medium of painterly expression. He links diverse visual traditions – from the ornamentalism of Islam to the abstract and concrete art of western Modernism – opposites whose common roots he tries to find.
Organic forms and colour resonate and seem to float in space and create a rhythmic structure. The artist creates a canon of holistic forms and shapes out of this dynamic process, covering cultural borders and spaces of tension. Due to their presentation in a former coal mixing plant, Stenschke’s “pictures in black boxes” attain a particular force that reveals hidden structures and the details of a universal visual language to the viewer.
