Beate Höing / Andrea Damp

September 15 - October 7, 2018

BEATE HÖING- hello again
Galleri Thomassen is pleased to present hello againBeate Höing´s second solo show at the gallery. In the exhibition Höing invites the viewer into an ambivalent game of reality and fiction where dreams and nightmares, relief and dread lie side by side in wall installations and sculptures.
Her work is inspired by the ornamental and textural material used in the cultural-historical folk art of fairy tales and myths as well as in traditions and rituals, out of which she has created her own autonomous iconography.

 

ANDREA DAMP – Carpe noctem
We are please to present Carpe noctem, Andrea Damp´s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. The exhibition include among others the latest paintings from her work cycle Déjà-vu, which are closely related to her childhood on the island of Rügen.
Damp´s work is dedicated to a subtle dialogue between narrative and abstraction. Using figurative elements, she transforms abstract compositions into narrative, associative pictorial worlds characterized by atmosphere and emotional expression.
