    Detailed Description : Looking at the pictures of Tom Christopher, you see cyclists and pedestrians hurriedly attempting to thread their way through the traffic roaring daily through the city; you follow the path of taxis and buses plowing their way through the crowded streets between skyscrapers and imposing buildings – sometimes slowly, sometimes at top speed – and again and again their movement is interrupted by red lights or pedestrian crosswalks; interspersed among all that, you catch glimpses of construction workers intently concentrating on doing their work properly, in spite of the obvious chaos that is always rampant in a metropolis. With indefatigable fascination, over and over again Tom Christopher sketches glimpses of urbane, exhilarating metropolitan life in New York. His pictures tell stories and anecdotes about individual people, snatched from the day-to-day life of the city’s residents and tourists, a hectic and amorphous mass of humanity that seems to pervade every last corner of the buildings and streets. Just like short still pictures from a movie, he sifts out frequencies, freezing time for a brief instant to permit more detailed insight into what is happening. The ordinary day-to-day life of the individual becomes a stylised symbol of urban life in the metropolis, with the immediate moment serving as a starting point.

    Detailed Description : Edite Grinberga was born in Riga, Latvia, in 1965. She was a student at Janis Rozentals Riga Art School from 1975 until 1982 and studied painting and textile design at the State Academy of Art in Riga as of 1983. Following her studies, she initially worked freelance as an independent artist in Riga. Since 1990 she has lived and worked in Berlin. In 2011 she spent some time at the Santa Fe Art Institute in New Mexico, USA, in connection with a scholarship. In her depictions of interiors and still life motifs, Edite Grinberga conjures up quiet moments recounting various trips and the past with the aid of representational hyperrealism and minimalistic reduction. In particular, the interplay of light and shadow plays a very important role in Grinberga’s works. The manner in which light seems to fall accidentally is part of her meticulously planned composition. Everyday objects, such as a chair, a book or a piece of clothing, are showcased completely in line with the tradition of Dutch 17th century paintings of interiors, but nevertheless in an entirely modern fashion – arranged in almost empty rooms or placed on individual pieces of furniture like a chest or drawers or a bed.

    Detailed Description : Painting or photography? That is the question that inevitably arises when one views the works of Philipp Hofmann with their fine, painting-like structure, which is very evocative of brush strokes. Quite clearly, it is a convergence of two artistic worlds: the world of oil painting and the world of photography, which is the actual medium of Philipp Hofmann’s art. The manifold facets of painting have seemingly been exhausted in the history of art; similarly, the modern technique of photography has hemmed in the individual artistry of the photographer to an increasing extent. Against the backdrop of such developments, Philipp Hofmann has integrated a new approach to photography into his works, an amalgamation of the two art forms in which painting does not imitate the capabilities of photography: instead photography borrows the tactile and compositional expression of painting – the inversion of photorealism.

    Detailed Description : The painting of Heiner Meyer is characterised by consistency und a non-dogmatic refusal to compromise as well as by the principles of “arte sull’arte”, art in which art itself is the primary theme. In his works, he masterfully superimposes quotations and adaptations from a huge variety of sources in layers, one on top of the other, thus demonstrating the simultaneousness of the non-simultaneous. Sculptures from the Greek classical age, pictorial themes from the painting eras of the past, portraits of currently popular movie stars and those of the fifties, Mickey Mouse and other comic characters, cars, logos of well-known fashion brands and cubes – they are all constantly recurring elements in the visual vocabulary of Heiner Meyer, elements that are quoted again and again in continuously new constellations and confrontations. In his sculptural work – just like in his paintings – he investigates the themes of popularity and consumption of merchandise. Well-known status symbols or comic characters are divorced from their context and staged as cast bronze or wooden sculptures – in some cases oversized. In 2014 he created two large sculptures focusing on the theme of Chanel No. 5 in co-operation with Chanel and Tush magazine.

    Detailed Description : In his sculptural works, most of which are made out of wood, the sculptor Christof Paul realises a very special interplay of various different components, harmonising them effectively with one another. Christof Paul loves creating something new out of the urbane and simultaneously delicate material. The rough and untouched structures of different types of wood which the artist uses for his works provide him with inspiration during that creative process time and time again. What fascinates him is the resulting symbiosis of precision, loving attention to detail and the raw authenticity of wood. The artist seeks and finds the motifs for his sculptures in society at large and in Nature. The subject matter of his depictions may be human as well as animal. Working on the basis of a sketch prepared in advance, he starts releasing the basic shape of the future sculpture with the aid of a power saw. Once he has found it, you can literally watch how his works gradually evolve into a concrete vision. By skillfully incorporating glances, gestures and poses, Christof Paul infuses his works with a vibrancy and expressiveness that cast a spell on the observer from the very first moment. With a keen eye for the latest in fashion trends, he dresses his figurative works in colourful clothing, also enhancing it with patterns and vital details using filigree painting techniques.

    Detailed Description : The Cologne-based artist Alireza Varzandeh reveals day-to-day life, the structures and customs of society to us as if through a looking glass. From boisterous beach scenes to urban construction workers, passers-by and cyclists in traffic, people walking in the park, in rain and shine, to extremely colourful floral still life scenes – there does not seem to be any subject that is unworthy of painting or uninteresting from the composition perspective for this artist, who was born in Persia in 1963.As if he were using a zoom lens, Alireza Varzandeh creates extreme close-ups of selected scenes of vibrant, fast-paced contemporary life and brings them to a standstill for a brief moment. The viewer is spontaneously and unexpectedly drawn into the pictorial narrative and cast under the spell of his works thanks to the extensive color palette, purposeful placement of shadings, reflections and light accents.

About

Located in the Westend district of Frankfurt, the gallery - Galerie Barbara von Stechow - was founded in 1995. Every year it organises up to 10 exhibitions, frequently combining the two artistic media: painting and sculpture.
The main focus areas of the gallery’s programme are promotion of contemporary young artists and established talents from the German-speaking region as well as intensive emphasis on the works of well-known American artists, such as Joe Stefanelli, Tom Christopher and David FeBland.
Galerie Barbara von Stechow has an international clientele and maintains a broad range of contacts in the widely ramified international art scene by regularly taking part in diverse art shows in Germany and abroad, among other things.

In addition to organisation and presentation of alternating exhibitions, we also provide advice with regard to artistic design for private homes and offices, companies and public institutions.
With the aid of highly individual concepts geared to reflecting the ideas of the client, we develop new art concepts for various interiors as well as designs for integrating new works of art into already existing collections. In our view, the task of the gallery in this context is meticulous and comprehensive planning support for our clients.
Galerie Barbara von Stechow has already provided advisory service and works of art to a large number of well-known corporations as well as private and public buildings. Furthermore, it has also been involved in designing public outdoor areas and incorporating large works of art in line with urban planning considerations.
