THE BEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING
Group Exhibition in the Pashmin Art Gallery Hamburg with
GERD REHME | CHRISTINA CZARNOWSKE | BARBARA BIENEMANN
The goddess Maia was the patron saint of fertility and beauty. We owe the name of the beautiful spring month of May to her. With the ethos of the Greek goddess in mind, we have given the May group exhibition at the Pashmin Art Gallery Hamburg the motto “The Tolerable Lightness of Being”, as art is the best diplomat of lightness.
Meet our three art diplomats:
BODY OF THE OBJECT AS/IN ART: EUROPEAN ART IN CHINESE ART SPACE
23.09. - 23.11.2021
The 2nd Chongqing International Modern and Contemporary Art Exhibition
More than 250 works by 37 artists from 14 European countries is exhibited including paintings, sculptures, art installations, etc.
The definition of art in the 20th century has changed the whole concept of art. It is the perspective of the artist and the art viewer which determines how we can call an object a work of art. How do we look at the Body of the Object as/in Art? The number of ways to achieve the mode of perfection in making art is “at least” equal to the imagination of each artist and “most probably” much more than the number of artists in the world.
Squek Carnwath - What befor Came After
New York, October 12, 2015 – Jane Lombard Gallery presents What Before Came After, Squeak Carnwath´s first solo exhibition in New York City in over a decade. The exhibition features a selection of Carnwath´s paintings and cigar-box sculptures spanning 25 years of practice. Active in the Bay Area since the 1970s, alongside artists such as Viola Frey and Jay DeFeo, Carnwath has developed a signature style that incorporates meticulously applied layers of oil paint with text, repeated symbolic iconography, and abstract patterns to create complex works which gradually reveal her personal exploration of representation, memory, and the human experience. The artist will be present for the opening reception on October 22 from 6-8 pm.
Jean Benoit Pouliot:Artist in Residence
In its essence, my work revolves around different formal issues, such as composition and how the spectator reads an image. My paintings focus on the contrasts arising between what is organic and what is geometric. The composition of my work generally consists of several layers that generate subtle push-and-pull effects.
I recently started using some of my paintings to explore the potential trajectories of an image. Given the numerous filters that synthesize and compress the information by which we understand the world, I seek to explore the space that exists between physical and virtual reality (or between the object and its representation). By shifting, deforming and digitally modifying these images, I will examine how a painting undergoes several transmutations. Furthermore, the process through which visual information is continuously synthesized applies not only to images, but also to other spheres of our society. As such, it is undoubtedly fertile ground for further exploration.

“Wooden Art between Fragility and Durability” by Daniel Fuchs
Solo Exhibition “Wooden Art between Fragility and Durability” by Daniel Fuchs
Daniel Fuchs was born in 1974 in a small town called Greiz, in the south of Thuringia, Germany. Because of its historical buildings, the city is nicknamed the “Pearl of the Vogtland”; it has also two magnificent castles as landmarks. He was raised by his grandmother at a young age. Fortunately, Fuchs was surrounded by art in childhood since his grandmother showed him through “Satiricum” in Greiz’s “Sommer Palace”, a collection of world-famous satirical drawings and paintings. But from an early age he felt oppressed by the tightness and monotony of everyday life in East Germany. When the Berlin Wall fell and the East Germany regime collapsed, he felt relieved, but hopes for an improvement in his personal situation were not yet fulfilled. He followed different jobs but they did not fill him spiritually; he then discovered his fondness for all forms of artisanal and artistic woodworking.
Valentine Exhibition - Pashmin Art Gallery
Group Exhibition called “VALENTINE EXHIBITION” by Lisa Etterich, Sophie Le Van Gong, Olena B. Linse, Natalja Nouri and Kendra Troschel
“LOVE IS NOT ONLY A FEELING; IT IS ALSO AN ART”
Honoré de Balzac
Valentine’s Day is a festival celebrating love which unites souls and worlds. AS Honoré de Balzac wrote properly “Love is not only a feeling; it is also an art.” Like all arts, inspiration is not enough, it also needs a lot of X factor. In this 2-day exhibition Valentine’s Day was commemorated in exceptional artworks by five international artists from different countries. The works of these artists have been exhibited in many national and international exhibitions by Pashmin Art Consortia.
Born on 09.12.2009, Nuesh Nouri, is one of the youngest artists whose works are shown at international art fairs and galleries. From her very early years she was introduced to art by her parents Nour Nouri (international art manager and gallery director) and Natalja Nouri (an established artist of international fame). She was also connected to art by her travels to the US and China from early years. Her spontaneous and simultaneously thoughtful reaction to colors is astonishing. The choice of warm, loud colors with some unknown feminine touch of novel childish originality, of sudden brush-strokes and dripping colors, unpolluted by adulthood made her works prominent even when she was four years old and her works were shown at Art Canton 2014 in China and Art Palm Beach 2015 in the US. Now she is developing her technique and the wide world is open to her dreams.
Kendra Troschel is a third-generation artist who employs a romantic contemporary figurative style. Her art seeks to explore the meaning of love in all of its forms – not just romantic love, but the love of oneself and even the love of a moment – all through the female perspective. Kendra’s paintings, usually made with acrylic paint and pastels, visualise the range of human emotions. Inspired by literature and the feelings it provokes, she shows us the moments that define us. She now works and lives in Oxford, UK.
Sophie Le Van Gong
From an early age, Sophie Le Van Gong has been interested in different types of artistic creation, particularly in the visual arts. The multicultural influences of her childhood led Sophie to use a combination of ink and acrylic paint on canvas and paper. She has progressively improved her technical knowledge by following two main guidelines, namely “a love of detail” and “an active connection with nature”.
Olena Bratiychuk Linse
Olena Bratiychuk Linse represents and symbolises the self-confidence and self-assurance of women in her paintings. She admits that she is affected by an ideal of beauty influenced by Southern Europe and refers to classical models and ancient Greece. “Often a kind of fusion occurs between what I know, my own life experiences, my feelings and my inspiration”, says the artist.
In Natalia Nouri’s work, the cultures, concepts, and symbolism of East and West collide in a mysterious symbiosis. She asks questions about what holds the world together in its most elemental sense – the hidden connections between macrocosm and microcosm. Natalja Nouri draws micro-organisms which she uses as a metaphor for galaxies to demonstrate the unity of micro and macro cosmos. The genetic chain is a preoccupation of the artist and it features repeatedly in her work, illustrating how the very essence of humanity source is connected to nature. Whatever the scale of her art, she works with an accuracy that is correct to the last millimeter. Nothing is left to chance; even the smallest detail becomes a miniature of astonishing verisimilitude.
Lisa Etterich studied at art schools in Hamburg and Zurich. For three years she studied at the prestigious Institute of Fine Arts in Bochum and was a student of Professor Shi Yang, a native of China. Artists and theorists were made familiar with the Far Eastern art of drawing and ink painting. With the resources of emotion, intuition and inspiration she lets everyday reality behind and opens the cosmic worlds beyond space and time. With all the exuberant fantasy, many of her artistic creations still display harmony and peace. The trilingual book (English, German, Chinese) LISA ETTERICH: A JOURNEY INTO NEVERLAND published by Pashmin Art Publisher is about her life and art.
IN MEMORIAM OF GEORG MÜNCHBACH
The exhibition, curated by Natalja Nouri will be on display at Pashmin Art Gallery for four weeks in memory of the artist Georg Münchbach. Nour Nouri, the director of Pashmin Art Gallery and Falk Münchbach the son of the artist opened the exhibition.
In his long life Georg Münchbach created hundreds of paintings and sculptures. He worked on something that he wanted to work out and that occupied him completely. His works seem dense, they are intense, they close themselves off in a certain way like a myth that is only revealed to some who can initiate the journey.
FRAGILE | FEMININE | FRAGMENTS (04.12.2021 - 10.01.2022)
Vernissage: December 4th, 2021 at 5.30 p.m.
The group exhibition « FRAGILE | FEMININE | FRAGMENTS » represents three artists: RENO, MONICA DIAMOND AND DIMITRI ATHANASIOU alongside prose recitation by Stella Tsianios and music by Ramón Lazzaroni
Reno joins us from France. For the artist Reno, sculpting means “feeling, learning to see, loving, becoming sensual.” His works of art shine with feminine eroticism, because he manages to delight even with a shaped back. Reno tries to suggest desire, to provoke emotions, to reveal a thrill in order to stimulate or disturb the viewer. “He uses different materials: clay, plaster, stone …and he always searches for the beauty in the movements, the movements of the body, the sensuality of the curves. Eroticism in women is multiplied by the magic of a simple smile, by a lonely hand inviting us to travel far away. Desire stems from a thrill.”
