Artist Profile

 

Manfred Hürlimann

Whoever looks at Manfred Hürlimann's paintings first recognises something concrete.

Then he will see that they are pictures of people; Images of people in a special condition.
A large part of the image area is empty: with a coloured or black background.
Whoever addresses Hürlimann's paintings asks less about the way in which they were made than about their content.
The low perspective view of the figures, the artist's handling of the colours, his painting technique become a minor matter in view of the background composition of the picture. The decorative appearance quickly turns out to be an optical trap; the second appearance turns out to be a negation of the aesthetic.
Manfred Hürlimann's imagery is embedded in the elegance of the sophisticated world.
Life is a theater, and theater in all its diversity is the subject of this exhibition.
Both the actor and the viewer play their part.
Image content and its painterly representation challenge the viewer: to see, to recognise, to understand.
Dr. Claus Pese

John and Renate Hammond are celebrating forty years as curators and practising artists with the opening of their private museum in Dover which houses their collection of art.

P R I V A T E   C O L L E C T I O N

 

The Hammond Collection evolved through purchasing works of art and gifts from artists exhibited by curators John and Renate Hammond over the last four decades, running their Galerie am Theater (1979 – 1992) and Art-Agency Hammond (since 1993).

 

The collection contains 650 works of art, of which over 400 are by Renate Hammond  who is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg.
