Axel Grünewald looks at the edges of the present. For more than five years, he has repeatedly traveled through the coastal regions of Morocco and southern Spain, to the continental border between Europe and Africa.

Raimund Girke

2012 is the tenth anniversary of the death of the painter Raimund Girke. This catalogue presents around forty works from all creative phases of the artist’s life; it is published to mark the occasion and to accompany the exhibition at the Museum Kurhaus Kleve.
Girke’s entire oeuvre is shown in its incredible consistency: a radical renunciation of all figurative motifs; his paintings are visual experiences that emerge from the practice of paintbrush and paint. Girke’s paintings are defined by their quiet rhythm and clear structure – they demonstrate both great concentration and great composure.
