The KUNSTWERK – Sammlung Klein celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2017. The dual exhibition in Eberdingen-Nussdorf with works by Sean Scully and Liliane Tomasko represents a high point in the anniversary year. It accentuates a significant collection highlight of recent years and at the same time underlines the personal connection of the collector and artist couples.

#17

Alison and Peter W. Klein have built up a block of work by Sean Scully, which is unique in Europe and which traces his artistic development from 1973 to the present day. Sean Scully, who was born in Dublin in 1945, is one of the world’s most important contemporary artists. After influences from Op Art and minimalist art, his work since the 1980s has displayed unmistakable imagery with orthogonally aligned colour fields and bands condensed in layers of paint. The colour application and colour tone here are emotionally charged. Abstract painting with Scully becomes the artistic equivalent of human experience and feeling.

Liliane Tomasko, who was born in Zürich in 1967, creates her artistic work from the private sphere. Clothing, blankets or bed sheets form figurative references in her painting. In her new works, the figurative provides only the structural basis for her paintings, which form pictorial spaces of weaves of graphical and painted elements with gestural strokes.

For the first time, the exhibition at KUNSTWERK shows an interleaved presentation of both positions, which allows artistic dialogues between their works to arise independently of a chronological arrangement.
