Selected artistic highlights of the paper positions

In Raha Khosroshahi‘s (*1997) work, shapes make suggestions of being something like a hairdryer, uterus or cake. Lines seem to join together to form circuits and yet any presumption of function is ultimately lost in the unknown. Deep red areas of colour surrounded by light sandy tones are reminiscent of hot lava digging through soil. Sugar icing and pools of blood, sweet and salty, technical and organic, threatening and safe all come impressively close together in Khosroshahi’s visual world. On view at the O Gallery stand.

Greg Colson (*1956), shown by Bradwolff & Partners, has a mischievous streak. With his humorous works, he draws attention to how doggedly we humans try to measure and gauge everything. In the form of statistics, tables and diagrams, the universe, opinions or growth are visualised in a seemingly tangible way. Colson takes a playful approach to the beauty and absurdity of the mania for measurement, consumption and the masses, sometimes abstracting, sometimes taking it to extremes.

Layers, cut-outs and coloured areas lend archaeological dimensions to the paper of Harald Kröner (*1962). A game of hiding and uncovering. Streams of brown ink cannot be stopped in their flow by the edges of collaged layers. A trickle meanders through the circumstances. Strips of pastel-coloured paper rise vertically like skyscrapers against a grey metropolitan sky. Kröner’s collages open up exciting thematic fields between Plattenbau and Plattentektonik. On view at Bernhard Knaus Fine Art.

With Ardan Özmenoğlu (*1979), lots of Post-its return to the Anna Laudel Galerie‘s exhibition booth. With his choice of Post-its, Özmenoğlu pays tribute to the everyday, to paper that is useful for remembrance. Many small ones make a strong whole. Her works usually refer to Turkish or international pop culture. The artist does not fight the curving nature of the Post-it, she leaves it as it is, creating a texture reminiscent of feathers or scales that lends the overall image an animal-like tactile component.
