Unmittelbar, Oil on Canvas

Exhibition: Unmittelbar, Opening: 5. August 2018, 1pm / Zionskirche, 10119 Berlin

From 5. to 31.of August 2018 Can Henne presents his current series of oil portraits "UNMITTELBAR".

The total of 16 paintings in the exhibition show different faces, enlarged and stretched to the edge of the canvas. Accessories, hairstyles or other personal
characteristics are not to be seen, the focus is on the look of the pictured face.
The facial features are translated in demarcated, simplified strokes and contrasting surfaces; they indicate the signs of age and the anatomy of the face
only picturesque.
Despite the slight alienation the (álla-prima) painted portraits appear idiosyncratically alive and demand the viewers approach without delay.
You are cordially invited to do so in this church as an ideal space.
