it's not lost, it's just been hidden

When working, Julius Linnenbrink’s focus lies on the process of painting, creating his compositions in the moment in lieu of any guidelines or preset goals. Uninhibited, Linnenbrink develops the color gradients, spaces, layers, and glazes out of a more fluid painting process, achieving an intense interplay of act by communing with the events taking place on the canvas.

Through the act of meditative painting, factors such as intuition, rhythm, and action merge, overcoming restrictions of consciousness. Linnenbrink describes this dynamic state of mind and body as an unrestrained „flow“ that increasingly becomes more and more independent from its starting point. 

Continuously overlaid and shifted by the artist’s spontaneous interventions, the works evolve into a vivid communication partner throughout the painting process. Unexpected pictorial ideas emerge, which inevitably lead to multi-layered paintings. This open method of painting allows and encourages interruptions and rethinking at any point in time.

The allotted freedom leads to questions for which Linnenbrink constantly seeks new solutions. As he gradually combines different conditions and dimensions of paint, forming varying pictorial zones, the resulting multi-dimensionality merges into a coherent pictorial space. Linnenbrink's brushstrokes reveal the intensity of an action and its possible sequence, which, in other places, appears incoherent and no longer legible. Materialized open and transparent areas are contrasted by hermetic surfaces, leaving the various depths of the painted space oscillating between disclosure and restraint.

IDENDITY

Many artists deal with their own or others' identities in the conception of their works or bring it unconsciously into creative processes. The identity of a person is created by processing experiences and is constantly changing through external, internal and stored experiences. Many works of art do not initially allow conclusions to be drawn about the identity or the personal experiences and their processing of artists. However, if one examines the biography and motivation of the artists, new insights and connections often emerge.

The exhibition "Identity" shows works by artists whose confrontation with their own and other identities is formative and immanent for their works, but also highlights works by artists who unconsciously and at first inconspicuously include their identity or the processing of the same in them.

Some paintings or sculptures even replace the information or narrative of a classic self-portrait or portrait without depicting the protagonist himself. Through personal experience, physical energy and the individual use of different techniques, connections between artists and works often emerge that cannot be seen directly.
