CCA Andratx cordially invites you to the opening of the exhibition on Saturday May, 28th at 12pm at CCA Gallery.

CCA Andratx is pleased to present the two-person show featuring works by Hansjoerg Dobliar and Bernd Ribbeck from May, 28th at the CCA Gallery.

The show culminates the stay of both artists in the CCA Artists-in-Residence Program and brings for the first time on Mallorca a close view to their body of work. This is not the first time the two artists share an exhibition space. In the early 2000s both concurred in Munich’s art scene, where after completing their studies at the Academy of Arts, they took part in several shows. Now, after some time, their work reconvenes on Mallorca.

The exhibition, comprising more than 15 artworks, presents an individual selection by each artist, while also revealing new works made during their residence.

Dobliar and Ribbeck’s works meet many common interests. Under a formal reading it is undoubtedly the experimental work with pictorial possibilities, while the use of abstract language allows them to articulate truly unique compositions. Whereas after a deeper reading, individual features of each are revealed, giving rise to the recognition of an individualist and renowned work.

Hansjoerg Dobliar’s (1970, DE) work could be defined as explosive, evoking to expressionist geometric abstraction. Thick and heavy dripping brushstrokes become a plaidoyer to paint itself as matter - Beauty concentrated in a single stroke of a brush. A construction based upon infinite layers of geometric shapes shifting randomly our perception. By observing his work one enters the subjective world of the artist, where abstraction and figuration meet, but above all featuring the hedonist effect of the pleasure in looking.

Bernd Ribbeck’s (1975, DE) works are a continuous challenge to our perception and reading ability. Behind clean and clear geometric compositions, a willingness to unite the spiritual and the abstract is hidden. The transformation suffered on the surfaces of his works is slightly revealed through marks and voids; on MDF boards, Ribbeck applies special ballpoint pens and pigment markers, which later, in an expressionist creative process will be scraped, sanded and cut, giving form to interlaced layers revealing their own fate. The meditated compositions evoke to architectural surreal games; those where one feels unable to discern the beginning of the end, but can’t stop scrolling through the maze - a delirious pleasure for the eyes.
