Ildefonso Aguilar – Painting and Photography




A Film about the Artist and Composer

Ildefonso Aguilar, who lives and works in Lanzarote, is considered an important representative of the ecology movement on the island. Aguilar expresses his closeness to the island landscape in his paintings, musical compositions and architectural works. His themes are the four elements fire, water, air and earth. In addition to acrylic paint he uses natural materials such as volcanic ash or sand.

Between 1963 and 1968, he studied art in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. In Arrecife, he taught painting and drawing for six years. Since his main field of oil painting on canvas did not satisfy him personally, he devoted himself increasingly to a lifelong passion, photography.

Over time he found his way back to painting: he had developed a new technique in which he edited photos with sand, and created surfaces with glue and grains, giving a new structure to his paintings. Soon he tried it on wood, for example the wood that has been traditionally used for shipbuilding, and in this way developed the first sand images which have a unique expression due to their own characteristics and precision.

Through his five trips to Iceland, he is now inspired by the nature of the largest volcanic island of the earth, which, despite its northern location has much in common with his homeland, especially the geological origin.

Today Ildefonso Aguilar is one of the few artists who uses the sand-technique in paintings and photographs. By many layers of fine sand, he gradually creates a landscape that reminds the viewer of Lanzarote or Iceland.

Gabriele Hagenhoff – Sculpture



The ceramic artist Gabriele Hagenhoff, who studied Ceramic Design in Krefeld, lives and works in Osnabrück. Her figurative sculptures are characterized by their authentic expression, with their abstract faces the focus entirely goes onto the movement of the body - the timeless figures dance the dance of life.

Their gestures have an expressive power of reaching out and going deep within, which makes them a mirror of the soul and a visualization of the inner sensation.

The interweaving of the rugged surface with the vitality of movement creates the constant play between injury and healing, between melancholy and joy of life. In this way the viewer becomes aware of how he can grow from the challenges of life.

Clarity and Mystique

Dan Hepperle
Martin Hensel
Isam Telhami



Dan Hepperle - Nuances




Dan Hepperle works in the seclusion of a village in the Eifel, creating paintings with white as the main color, which requires calmness, concentration and a lot of time. He tackles the theme of light, which in its purest appearance manifests itself as the color white and points towards something non-physical, metaphysical. With endless variations he constantly creates new moods around the phenomenon of light. Space is a second important theme for his work and is reflected as a line that enters the scene, playfully dancing or more strict and straightforward. His paintings are vivid and yet centered, they apparently show little but actually they transport a lot.

Martin Hensel - Primordial Sculptures



With chainsaw and fire, it is loud and powerful in Martin Hensel's "open-air-studio" in front of his garage entrance. Martin Hensel purposefully looks for contact with passers-by and residents of his district because he wants to trigger a resonance with his art.
On the one hand, he actively looks for material for his works, and on the other hand it can be that he finds his material as he is walking by the Rhine and collects what the "river of life" washes into his hands. The themes that move him equally as a coach, and as a sculptor, are being sane as well as being wounded, growth and change.
For Martin Hensel the sculptural process is an opportunity to become aware of issues and transform them. Therefore his artistic work signifies a confrontation with himself - things that are split off become visible and perceptible and can become part of the whole again.
In addition to a personal introspection it is always about environment (the people around), and the knowledge that we are involved in, and responsible for, a greater whole.

     

Born in 1955, grew up in Hengsen - a village next to Unna, which had 300 inhabitants at that time.
Since 1992 freelance Coach and Training Coach, NLP Trainer for Communication and conflict resolution training in his own insitute in Neuss.
Since 1985 Aikido and development of the concept 'Aikido and conflict resolution'

Power of Source

Gabriele Musebrink
Johannes Dröge
Horst-Peter Jansen



Gabriele Musebrink – Experimental Painting




Gabriele Musebrink's creative process begins inside as a silent dialogue, until the moment comes and an idea emerges about the form, materiality and texture of the subject and asks her to take action. The process of painting, which then usually turns out explosively, can be seen as a continuation of the previous process. The technical procedure is secondary to the inner process.

Gabriele Musebrink lets herself be guided entirely by the material of the colors, she gives space to an internal development process, so that the painting materials can help to give shape. The impasto paint application creates a sculptural, relief-like surface, reminiscent of desert earthy landscapes and erosion-torn areas, which is also caused by the colors through the use of soil, sand and minerals. Inspired by nature, her art is about what is behind the phenomenon. This creates a powerful, profound and yet joyous vitality in her works.

Johannes Dröge - Sculpture



Johannes Dröge has an intuitive, deep connection to nature and to his material, stone. In the 60 years of his activity he has already trimmed and polished stones sculptures from all over the world. His respect for the environment and the timelessness of his material is evident in all his sculptures at first glance.

Vita
Trained in a sculptor's workshop, study visits to Carrara, including the studio of Luigi Corsanini.
Since 1966 freelance, with over 500 exhibitions in Germany and abroad.
Artist Focus: stone sculpture (granite, marble, diabase).
1981 awarded the State Prize, "Stone", from North Rhine-Westphalia

     



Horst-Peter Jansen - Photography



Horst-Peter Jansens photographs are on the border of abstraction and recognition. In his work his early preoccupation with the analog black-and-white photography is still alive. This leads to his main theme of nuances in contrast and brightness and their graphical relationships. His photographs open a new perspective onto the world and are more than a visual experience.

Horst-Peter Jansen's exhibition is a debut: after having worked in secret for 45 years, he is now showing his carefully edited photographic art to the public.
