Andrea Lehmann - Johannes Huppi
The Kravets/Wehby Gallery is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition of new work by Johannes Hüppi and Andrea Lehmann. The exhibition opens Thursday October 25, with a reception from 6-8 pm and runs through December 8, 2007.
Inner turmoil spills from the canvas in the work of Andrea Lehmann and Johannes Hüppi. Hüppi creates intimate portraits of haunted women utilizing a painterly approach and smaller scale. Naïveté ensues amongst suspiciously saccharine women despite intermittent hauntings of nightmarish beasts and beheaded figures.
Both artists explore the sinister thoughts that loom in the periphery of creative unconscious, but where Hüppi is subtle Lehmann screams intensity. Her expansive vistas of painted terror are madness writ large. Lehmann counters the somber and contemplative nightmares of Hüppi with wily hordes of women and incessant chatter. Hüppi and Lehmann thoroughly explore the dark side of reverie and the myths surrounding. Romantic, or not, both leave the viewer with a delectable feast for the senses.
Opening Reception: Thursday October 25, 6-8pm
