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.
