REINHOLD GOTTWALD – ANGULAR PLANETS ON PARADE
We welcome orbiting Berliner Reinhold Gottwald to our flagship universe at C.A.R., in from exhibitions in New York, Hamburg, Den Haag and many stations between. Better it has not been put than by NYC’s “Art For Progress”:
“I was impressed with the overall quality and diversity of the work in the show. The work of Reinhold Gottwald caught my attention. His colorful, small, abstract pieces on wood are hung/arranged as if they are a group of planets sharing the same solar system.” – Frank Jackson – art for progress-NYC
Reinhold Gottwald, born in 1961, lives and works in Berlin. The artist studied at the HfbK Hamburg in the 1980s and implemented a series of exhibitions in the domestic and abroad since then. Mid-nineties he founded the Project Gallery Walden Art Exhibitions that was Prize-honored by the Berlin Senate in 2013.
The theme of the artist is the relation of the individual to the space. The space is defined not only as an architectural or a physical phenomenon it is synonymous with the relationship of the individual to the entire. Reinhold Gottwald combines graffiti with video and installations, whose materials are the result of everyday encounters. The final determination is always done on-site. At C.A.R., Reinhold Gottwald presents informal “Mixed Media” works on industrial wood, which are a result of an accompanying process for his installations. Gottwald´s desire, to keep a development as long as possible open is visible in almost all works of the artist.
