Online exhibition

Hans carpenter / Retrospective

From March 22 to May 2, we show in our gallery in the castle Dätzingen the exhibition "Hans Schreiner - Retrospective for the 85th birthday". In parallel, we present here a selection of works in the context of our ONLINE exhibition.

Hans Schreiner is a landscape painter, whose theme, however, is not committed to a natural model, but to the emotional turn. In the sense of this processual process of perception, the artist lets nature move out of itself - in the wake of the so-called "Group 11" (with Georg Karl Pfahler, Günther C. Kirchberger and others) initially in the gesture of Informel, in the main work then with the symbolic representation of eruptive forces. Finally he finds, yes: invents the quiet, inwardly moved power of the horizon: with a wide landscape, which despite its pure, planar abstraction opens itself to the free association of natural spaces - enchanting, vulnerable, profound. Already at the end of his studies in Stuttgart, Schreiner abandoned the figurative bond that his teacher Manfred Henninger, for all his abstraction, had not been able to overcome, and under the lasting impression of the inexhaustible late work of Willi Baumeister, he formed metaphysical landscapes that in their sacral dignity come close to the purely intellectual-philosophical color spaces of a Mark Rothko. With recourse to German Romanticism, especially the atmospheric spaces of Caspar David Friedrich, Hans Schreiner develops a singular work that has lost nothing of its timeless presence.
