2016_Havekost — KINDL

Havekost eberhard

Havekost is one of a new generation of painters who use the digitalised, multimedial visual language in their work. It introduces an abstraction, namely a reduction in favor of the total picture. The paint was applied using a brush and spray gun, and the surface of the work has a predominantly matt appearance, with the occasional glossy area visible where the paint was applied using the gun. Lehmann, the enterprise that represented him in Dresden until his death. Our thoughts are with his family, his friends, and his many companions. He had eight solo exhibitions at the gallery, and was an integral and beloved part of our community. His work has been included in various private collections, such as the Saatchi collection, London, the Sammlung Goetz, Munich, the Sammlung Reingold, Düsseldorf, and the Sammlung Marx, Berlin, and in recent years he has participated in diverse important group exhibitions.

To make the painting, Havekost scanned the picture into a computer, manipulated its colours using photo editing software, and then used the resulting image as a reference from which to paint the scene onto canvas by hand. We will miss him very much—as a friend and as an indispensable artist whose view was always directed towards the social future, who overcame norms and always stood agains the repetition of the past. The selection of works for the Prague exhibition was conceived by Eberhard Havekost, and the curator of the exhibition is director of the Galerie Rudolfinum Petr Nedoma.

Eberhard Havekost’s Paintings: Reflecting on the Late Artist’s Work

Havekost eberhard

An Audio Tour through Berlin By Karin Sander, Temporäre Kunsthalle, Berlin Do They Love Their Children Too? The façades of the apartment buildings and objects often project a faceless modernity, and in some of his portraits the impersonality and clichédness of the person represented is palpable. Thus, an undefined space in painting must be redefined. After important solo exhibitions at venues including the Museum Küppersmühle Duisburg 2013 , the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt 2010 , and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam 2006 , Inhalt is the first institutional exhibition by Eberhard Havekost in Berlin. The pieces form a visible caesura in the artist's actuality of pictures, and develop further the artistic engagement with this topic within his oeuvre. The significance of his work lies not in its subject matter, however, but in its execution. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to the Museum as soon as possible.

Eberhard Havekost Dead at 51

Havekost eberhard

From 1991 to 1996, he studied painting at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts, and he had his first solo exhibition in 1995 at Galerie Gebr. He draws his images from a digital databank which enables him to manipulate them and possibly combine them with other images. Does this text contain inaccurate information or language that you feel we should improve or change? The figure is the rap musician Eminem, wearing the very loose clothing typical of American rappers in the 1990s and 2000s: in this case, a hooded black jumper with a white stripe running down each sleeve, and baggy, brown-coloured trousers, which also bear a vertical white stripe and are worn low on his waist, leaving a band of flesh visible across his lower back. The starting point for his painting is his own or found photographs, which he digitally edits and then uses as templates for his paintings. In the past presentations of Thomas Scheibitz, Franz Ackermann, Robert Zandvliet and others have been seen, and rather recently also of Michel Majerus. The works for this exhibition were drawn exclusively from the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, Florida.

The other painting, Ghost 2 2004 Tate , presents an identical composition but with the tones reversed: in Ghost 2, for instance, the hooded jumper is white with black stripes along the sleeves and the microphone-type object is white rather than black and grey. He is currently a Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Düsseldorf. With a ready supply of images, artists like Havekost are as concerned with what to paint as they are how to paint. The vagueness of images is a springboard to the path beyond the painting. The inspiration for the exhibition's title came from a series of six oil paintings that deal with the optical perception of the world of objects and their abstraction. The painter Eberhard Havekost, who was born in 1967 in Dresden, is among the most important German artists of his generation. The image quality itself, unencumbered by meanings, remains the most important part.

This exhibition here marks the first museum showing of German artist Eberhard Havekost in the United States. Although Richter regarded photography as more of a means to strengthen the significance of painting, and unlike Havekost, Richter never completely gave up on the significance of the theme and content of a depiction. Ghost 1 and Ghost 2 both present Eminem as a solid presence, his body and clothing depicted in detail with a sense of volume, in contrast with their purple backgrounds — the pale, sparkling effect of Ghost 1 and the darker, more ominous atmosphere in Ghost 2 — which evoke something fantastical or even supernatural, especially when the paintings are seen together. You can always infer from a single picture to a system. In painting, everything must be defined.
