Hermann Abrell – Paintings since 1978
Cabinet Exhibition Raum 10
Departing from the line, the painter Hermann Abrell, who was born in Dreis /Eifel in 1937 and has been living in Cologne for many years, creates image spaces of historic times in a multitude of repetitions and superimpositions. In these it is possible to recognize verticality as a life principle, full of tensions and excitingly built up between calm and movement, between meditative immersion and individual placement. Central to the exhibition is a large painting from 1978 on an ungrounded canvas as well as further works extending up to this day. An artist’s booklet by Hermann Abrell has been published.
