At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.


René Schoemakers

The Missing Kink
"René Schoemakers is a consummate artist. He debates the fundamental issues of life with merciless clarity, which replaces an entire philosophical library." (Christoph Tannert) The catalogue accompanying the exhibition of the same name in Museumsberg Flensburg presents Schoemakers‘ current work in its entire breadth: he dares to take on existential questions with art-historical references, mocking humour and individual mythologies. Schoemakers‘ multi-layered paintings combine varying levels of representation using a naturalistic technique reminiscent of the Old Masters . Arranged in series and supplemented by wall drawings, text and symbols, the result is a complex general context.
