MARTIN ASSIG - GLÜCKHABEN
Works on paper, sculptures
March 6th - May 17th, 2015
Martin Assig’s drawings shine with laconic words and sentences, to which he matches abstract patterns, faces, bodies and clothes in order to let intimate insights, remarks and quotes of the day speak mutely to us.
Possessed of unusual patience and perseverance Assig, born in Schwelm in 1959, now a Berlin resident, creates in his graphic works sheets that unfold a great inner splendour in a small space, targeting directly the very essence of life. The exhibition “Glückhaben” (being fortunate) presents, among other things, over 200 works on paper from his extensive group of work named St. Paul, a series that has been conceived as a tribute to Paul Klee and has kept growing since 2009.
