Wolf & Galentz presents the Berlin artist Gisa Hausmann.
Vernissage: Friday 15 November 2019 7pm
Exhibition: 15 November – 18. December 2019
“The artist Gisa Hausmann is one of the unknown celebrities of Berlin. She’s an insiders’ choice.” (Gisela Breitling)
In the course of her life, Gisa Hausmann (1942–2015) worked with a considerable range of artistic forms of expression, large-format drawing and etching, painting – with many allusions to the old masters; sculpture, and works in the technique Hapix-Set, which she developed herself.
One element that can be found throughout her oeuvre is the grotesque; distortion and exaggeration of lines and shapes, bordering sometimes on caricature.
As opposed to the two posthumous exhibitions, where the accent was placed on the last decades of the artist’s life, this show emphasizes her earlier work from the 1960s and 70s.
This exhibition in the Gallery Wolf & Galentz is the first of a series of shows which will explore the artist’s legacy. It will feature works never shown before as well as those seldom seen.
