Curator Liviana Dan

Armin Mühsam engages a semiotic discourse, based on an ambiguity of time as well as of space. He proposes a web of interactions, replacing the duality of man/nature with that of technology/landscape. His works are comprehensive systems of structures - monuments of concrete, machines and roadways - which are in fact the ruins of a self-destructing society.
There is a big difference between nature as seen through a metaphysical lens and nature as accessible to human perception and reproduced by artists. Thus, Max Friedländer was right to consider landscape as being a reality of a phenomenological order, in the Kantian sense, and not a reality in itself.
One never knows the locations of the places that Armin Mühsam paints but one instantly rea-lizes why humans are absent. Humanity is represented by its destructive fabrications: tunnels, dikes, walls, excavations, roads... an artificial landscape filled with technological architectu-re, or rather, a landscape as a backdrop for technology.
Mühsam’s visualization of this paradox brings into discussion the “beauty” of utilitarianism, but also the wounds it inflicts. Everything that seems to have a logical efficiency, everything that seems to be suited for a new world is actually a sterile world after the disappearance of nature.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Horst Georg Ambacher, gallery director

For the past 6 years, I have shown contemporary art in my gallery, motivated by a genuine curiosity about new, experimental, and unfamiliar artistic approaches. Art is meant to stimulate our interest, to inspire us and to make us think. Armin Mühsam does exactly that with his paintings, whose crisp linear shapes, clear colors, accentuated light, and deep perspective have impressed me ever since I first saw them. He strips his depictions down to their essence, and I am often struck by how unreal they sometimes seem, despite their naturalistic rendering. It is precisely this ambiguity, however, that provides the necessary space for viewers to reflect and discuss our adaptability to a new world. Armin Mühsam is represented in Germany exclusively by my gallery, and I wish him continued inspiration for future exhibitions.
Horst Georg Ambacher, Munich, May 2010



Wir freuen uns die zweite Einzelausstellung mit neuen Arbeiten des deutsch-rumänischen Künstlers Armin Mühsam aus Amerika in der Galerie Lichtpunkt-Ambacher Contemporary in München zeigen zu können. Der Künstler wird in Deutschland exklusiv von der Galerie Lichtpunkt-Ambacher Contemporary vertreten und ist zur Eröffnung anwesend.


WORTE ZUM KÜNSTLER

Armin Mühsam's Arbeiten faszinieren aufgrund ihrer geradlinigen Formen, klaren Farben, akzentuierten Lichtführung und perspektivischen Tiefe.

Der Künstler reduziert seine Arbeiten auf das Essentielle; darüber hinaus erscheinen seine Bilder durch die naturalistisch-realistische Malweise zuweilen unwirklich und strahlen eine magische Ruhe auf den Betrachter aus.

Seine Bilder erinnern mitunter an amerikanische Maler des 20. Jahrhunderts wie Charles Sheeler, Charles Demuth und Georgia O´Keeffe. (Präzisionismus - > Teil des amerikanischen Realismus und stark vom Kubismus und Futurismus beeinflusst)

Aber insbesondere an die statischen und geheimnisvollen Bilder des weltweit bekannten italienischen Malers Giorgio de Chirico. Er gilt als der Hauptvertreter der "Pittura metafisica", der sogenannten Metaphysischen Malerei, die als einer der wichtigsten Vorläufer des Surrealismus angesehen wird.


Öffnungszeiten:
Regulär, Dienstag - Freitag 13.00 -18.00 Uhr
