Stefan Plenkers

Space and symbol
Stefan Plenkers in Dresden belongs to one of the most important artist movements of the 20th century. Soon after finishing art school, he was inspired by thee spaces where he himself was active: beaches and harbours, circus and carnival, city scenes and bars. This painter has increasingly moved to his motifs to the surface and made them more abstract: creating paintings and drawings with hidden calligraphic symbols.
An intensive investigation on the part of the artist of the construction of visual spaces can be experienced in the works, in the structure of surfaces and the interplay between the interior and the exterior. Stefan Plenkers’ paintings and drawings ask fundamental questions about the spaces we live in.
