Helene Appel

Opening: Friday, September 9th 2011, 5pm
Duration: September 10th – October 22nd., 2011

For her first exhibition with Dorothea Schlueter Gallery, Helene Appel will show new large format paintings. Appel’s work involves the meticulous scrutiny and depiction of objects, made complex and compelling in their isolation across otherwise raw canvas surfaces. In some recent large works fishing nets wave and shimmer with op-art like electricity, in others the tall glassy surfaces of up-ended rain-water puddles reflect back the muddy infinity of sublime and starry-eyed high abstraction. Appel’s exhibition at Dorothea Schlueter coincides with the publication of a catalogue of the artist’s work over the last five years, edited by the Mönchehaus Museum Goslar, and published by Textem Verlag, Hamburg
