PARALLEL – Klaus Sievers and Benjamin Nachtvey
08.08.2021 bis 26.09.2021
The Kunstverein Oberhausen e. V. presents the artist BENJAMIN NACHTWEY in his project series "PARALLEL" KLAUS SIEVERS in the panorama gallery and in the cabinet. The “PARALLEL” project of the Oberhausen Art Association shows renowned artists of contemporary art every summer, which is accentuated and reduced to a selection of key works.
After his teaching position (2010–2012), Klaus Sievers is now active in the fields of drawing / printmaking for the development and coordination of cultural education projects on behalf of the Düsseldorf Cultural Office. In contrast to his literary works, which are partly funny, partly sarcastic and have made him famous beyond the country's borders, he offers varied painting with dark and expressive drawings. Encouragement on the button: “everything will be fine”, or “we'll take care of it my way”.
In his paintings of the last few years, Benjamin Nachtwey has dealt with cities, motorways and industrial landscapes as well as the theme of the “green” landscape. In the extensive series with both small and large-format pictures and numerous studies that are created in the studio or directly on site, he refers to the world that can be walked and experienced as it is at our feet. His enthusiasm and his interweaving with the subjects are always noticeable. Trying out different textures plays an important role in this.
