Braun-Falco Gallery is pleased to present JUNGLE - the gallery’s fourth exihibition by FELIX WEINOLD.

Some foreshadows already gave a hint: Felix Weinold is coming back to classic painting. For many years the appropriation artist used print technology as his major media, and now following some intermediate stages of overpainting photographies his lust on self handmade painting took over his ambitions.

With JUNGLE, Felix created a series of canvases in which arabesque-like excresence and amorphous platelet-like forms build up an intertwined three-dimensionally textured room. Even a botanical element is quiet obvious and might resemble a nature based origin his paintings are by far more picturesque than just figurative. In particular his ductus, using plenty of multicolored paint on a single brush mark, points to his joy to let the paint run and mingle on the either horizontally or vertically orientated background before the more birghtly colored twisting networks and soft-shaped forms appear in the front leaving a slight shadow on the back which increases the illusion of depth. Looking from distance a Tromple-L’oeil-like effect might be evoked although a closer perception will offer the gestic nature of his works. In JUNGLE painting is not used to create illusions, moreover it is made to recognize the brush strokes in reminiscence to the age of Enlightenment: Look here, that’s the way it works. Enjoy the tableau regardless  its figurative or abstract, but don’t look so romantic….as Brecht would say.  

Felix Weinold is a highly recognized German artist having exhibited in multiple solo and group shows around Germany and Europe including several museum shows such as the state textile museum in Augsburg, Kunsthalle Würth in Schwäbisch Hall, 1. Biennale at the Haus der Kunst, Munich, H2 Center of Contemporary Art Augsburg, Museo de Arte Contemporaneo Oaxace in Mexico, Mörkisches Museum Berlin, Museum Würth Künzelsau, Museum of Visual Arts in Leipzig, among others.
