The artist Lars Teichmann (born 1980 in Burgstädt/Germany) is known for his large-format paintings, in which he composes harmoniously balanced works with his generous, concentrated brushstrokes and expressive colour fields.
In the current exhibition, the artist focuses on the subject of still life paintings. In still life painting, symbolic contents have always been concealed behind the objects depicted. However, Teichmann does not pursue a fixed iconography in his works. Instead, he transforms his paintings into a visual experience in which the eye can recognize figurative elements out of the colour without them being present in the real sense. In his compositions, a pictorial world emerges that is accessed more through collective pictorial memory than through lifelike rendering.
