Figurescapes - Anne Hoenig

08.10. - 12.11.2020

The exhibition brings together works from four central series by Anne Hoenig: “At Arm’s Length”, “Hard Boiled Painting”, “Time Slice” and “Men in Suits”, which were created from 1993 onwards. The show includes portraits of personalities such as Jorge Luis Borges, William S. Burroughs, Man Ray and Inga Humpe. In her work, Anne Hoenig repeatedly deals with the coexistence of intimacy and distance and it often seems as if the inaccessibility of the figures opens up a space for emotions for the viewer, even for the promise of sensuality and closeness. 

As motifs she chooses people, mostly enigmatic women, in apparently private moments in life, whose atmospheres they occupy with their expressive gestures and posture. The old masters' plastic and brilliantly colored painting technique gives all of this the character of something mysterious and hidden. The places where we meet the people are always in resonance with their insides and invite us to take part in the picture happening, as confidants or secret observers.
