Pictures can undoubtedly speak. When they are alone, but even better with each other. This simple insight opens up a wealth of possibilities: In painting what distinguishes a soliloquy from a dialogue of images? Can viewers listen in? Understand the conversation, decipher the grammar? The exhibition ENTRE NOUS of Galerie Nothelfer follows this intuition with pairs of paintings by Toni Mauersberg. She combines portraits with non-representational paintings: More or less familiar beings from the rich fund of art history meet geometric or gestural forms, mostly quotations of abstract masters. By comparing the two, she uncovers the levels on which painted images become legible. From a symbolic and arthistorical point of view, new connections between expressions, colors, forms and painting styles emerge. And perhaps even open up a different sense to the subtle language of abstract painting, whose origins also lie in the search for new representations of spirituality and liberation. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog entitled ENTRE NOUS published by DCV.
