About Cecilia Pape
DIV, Acrylic on Canvas, 200 x 160 cm, 2018
Cecilia Pape, born 1986 in Göttingen, Germany, currently working and residing in Berlin, Germany. She studied painting, drawing and printmaking at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts and also a semester at the Spanish Universidad La Laguna in San Cristóbal de La Laguna. In her paintings, Cecilia works with geometrical shapes and forms, bodies, lines and figurative elements to create a composition full of harmonious tension. The way the objects correspond to and with each other creates a coordinated play of hinted perspective and humorous depth. Adding to this the confrontation of space to the layering of paint results in a concentrated language of the painting. The finished constellations contemplatively but decisively rule the diffuse and multilayered empty spaces and show a world where every component seems simultaniously disconnected and connected at the same time. Since 2017 Cecilia is Prof. Wolfram Adalbert Scheffler’s master apprentice.
About Moritz Neuhoff
Blur, Acrylic on Canvas, 250 x 200 cm, 2018
Moritz Neuhoff, born 1987 in Osnabrück, Germany, focuses his work mainly on three key elements of painting: color, light and the depiction of space. Not limiting himself to the classic painting techniques he often resorts to rather unusual tools that offer themselves to artists nowadays. At a first glance his mostly large format works give the illusion of being something they are not and in realising this one inevitably comes to the conclusion of it having to be digitally produced or in some way non humanly produced by machines and yet, after a closer look, the work reviles itself as truly and thoroughly painted by hand and the human body with its proportions and motions becomes the visible creator. Moritz Neuhoff studied at the Kunsakademie Münster and was master apprentice of Prof. C. Völker in 2016. He currently works and resides in Berlin, Germany.
