6th entre nous

[6 June 2017]  

Dear friends of art

Hot, harmonious, highly interesting – this would be our 6th Entre Nous described in a few words. But this alone would not be appropriate for a wonderful event.

Inspired by our motto "Nothing is as it seems", it became clear what art is best to do: to throw a glance behind the façade, to deal with what you see, or even not see.

The conversations that followed were an unrivaled addition. At the same time, together with our artists we could enjoy the unanimous praise of the quality and diversity of the shown works. Our decision to put sculptures a little further in the foreground was just as much appreciated as the composition of works by entirely new and longtime artists of our gallery program.

Speaking entirely new: In addition to our faithful friends, many new prospective customers have also found the way to us from a larger catchment area, which made this event an exciting and pleasantly connecting Entre Nous.

We thank you, our customers and guests, for your loyalty, your great interest and your refreshing openness for new things. To give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the art of our successful event, you will be able to see the works until the end of July.

If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact us by phone at 06221/484120 or by e-mail at kern@petrakern.de. You will have our undivided attention. We look forward to you!

Best regards

Petra Kern

For you and the art that gives us so much, we follow our path and already look forward to our sixth "Entre nous", which will take place on Saturday, 27th of May 2017 in Bergstraße 81, 69121 Heidelberg. Please save this date in your diary. Invitation will be sent out in early May 2017. Before enjoy a few impressions of our trade fair appearance from 15-19. February 2017 in Karlsruhe.

Come and visit us in Hall 3, Stand H36!

[11 January 2017]  

Dear valued clients and friends of Kunst – Kompetenz – Petra Kern,

HAPPY NEW YEAR and a healthy as successful year 2017 with wonderfully spent hours as you can do with us as it is that time again: 

already the sixth time – but now for the third time in a row – we are delighted to exhibit at art KARLSRUHE and we know: It’s going to be an exciting major event! On 125 m2, this year an even larger exhibition space, we present for the first time in Germany the New York painter Jérôme Lagarrigue. And we celebrate another premiere: From Austria and France the artist couple Jana & JS. In both of their one-artistshows figurative art awaits you which could not be more different and more contradictory – the artistic expression of both art conceptions will fascinate you!

Jérôme Lagarrigue through his works is permanently questioning. Being born to a French father and an American mother he represents two cultures – both Europe and America. This balancing act between two worlds is the core and source of strength in his work. This is disclosed in his paintings in a constant confrontation with the screen and the figures who he reveals closely, relentlessly and without distance. The paintings by the New York artist Jérôme Lagarrigue are powerfully captivating a room’s atmosphere. His “close ups” mirror humanity, beauty, but also vulnerability. Light and shadow, focused scenes and abstracted parts being brought together become a synthesis, a total piece of art with an unbelievable expression.

The artistic couple Jana & JS who lives and works in Salzburg got to know each other during a year abroad in Madrid. Over time the solo-artists Jana and Jean-Sébastian became „Jana & JS“. Their works are “cheeky and free” fitted into an environment that can be found both in urban and enclosed space. In an interplay of reflections and transparencies – inspired by the city and its changing architecture over time as well as by its inhabitants and viewers – the couple sprays urban landscapes,details of architectures and portraits on discarded everyday commodities. In terms of content the artists take up the interpersonal and touch the viewer’s soul through bright colours and their way of representing human interaction. They are using the stencil technique, only using their own photographs.

In addition to the highlights of ten established artists which we have represented for decades for good reason, we are happy to exhibit for the first time the symbolic geometric stone architecture of Migu Michael Syed who is already well known in Karlsruhe.

On the 12th of november numerous guests joined our fifth  "entre nous" and enjoyed our artists' new pieces of art! A pleasant and exuberant atmosphere, interesting talks and the exchange with the present artists did its best to keep the dull autumn weather outside.
