Paris, 7 December 2011, Art Media Agency (AMA).
Jérôme de Noirmont Gallery in Paris is currently hosting the exhibition, “Entre feu et glace”, dedicated to A.R Penck, until 7 January 2012.
It is the artist’s fifth exhibition in the gallery since 1996, which presents his latest paintings, created from 1997 onwards, along with new pictorial researches between abstraction and figuration. The pieces also reflect confrontation of extremes from the artist’s point of view of the world today. In his piece Elementarkräfte, created in 2009, A.R Penck expresses heat from natural elements such as the sun and volcanoes, while in his work, Stadt im Winter (2007), he depicts the harshness of a winter city.
Penck also claims that reality, although it can be plastic, emotional or historical, it can also appear between two opposite elements, instead of necessarily being between extremes. The exhibition has selected 23 paintings which indicate the plastic maturity of the German artist.
Jérôme de Noirmont Gallery will participate at Arte Fiera Art First in Bologna from 27 to 30 January, and will feature works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Valérie Belin, Keith Haring, A.R Penck, Pierre and Gilles, Benjamin Sabatier.
