Clemens Tremmel LAND
Berlin 8 Feb – 13 Apr 2019
Tremmel’s large-scale landscapes appear at first as though they easily fit into a historical style of painting that represents place and the longing for perfection. However, Tremmel presents a complex romantic order of the world as a kind of universal poetry, which he then proceeds to painstakingly pull apart. In the sawing out, shading or painting over and gradual elimination of pictorial parts, he erases the grandiose panorama and introduces an image of imperfection. The resulting landscapes are only partially revealed through his use of light and expressive, vibrant colors.
