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.

Thomas Graics

abstraction of nature
Thomas Graics’ images of Iceland are the culmination of his many years of experience as a pilot, painter and photographer.
Iceland is famous for its huge, glacier-covered mountains, green valleys and barren, black lava fields, traversed by milky-coloured glacial rivers. The specific mineral content lends the rivers their special appearance, diffusing the light. At certain times of the day, the rivers themselves seem to radiate light.
In Graics’ photos of these geologically impressive phenomena, which have fascinated the artist for years, perspective, as in the case of abstract paintings, is repressed and the landscape is abstracted onto the surface, formal oppositions come to life thanks to a harmonious collaboration of colours and forms.
