Date: 
Thursday, 27 July 2017 to Sunday, 10 September 2017

The paintings presented in the exhibition at “art place berlin” are from the series “By the Sea”, which goes back to a painting from 1984. Since 2016 Kirchhoff has once again been devoting intense attention to his work on this series, whose most essential elements are the nature of the sea, light, wind and the green grass of the coast. For Kirchhoff realising his ideas for images is an unorthodox, dynamic process that also permits spontaneity. He rapidly and expressively applies acrylic paint to the canvas. Because his painting process repeatedly generates new and surprising results, the formal intention emerges clearly only at the end of his work. He himself sees his paintings as symbioses of landscape and Art Informel, and he has adopted the wise motto: “Simple things need not be simple.”

Exhibition until Sep 10th, 2017, daily 9-21h, free entry
