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.

Özcan Kaplan

For Özcan Kaplan, painting is physical, gestural, an open process of gradual formulation. His non-figurative paintings depict poetic relationships between details. Filled with ruptures and ambiguities, they still convey an atmospheric tonality – they are a “free-for-all” of colours and shapes.
Kaplan views his works as “open works of art”, which do not impose an interpretation on the viewer but leave him or her free to make their own interpretation.  We also see the “apparent simplicity and an ease of appearance” oscillating in a delicate balance between image and object, colour and non-colour, painting and material.
