A Secret Art Tip for Málaga

I love to create art and I love to visit art. Málaga is a city with a great richness of museums, some very famous names included as there are: Picasso Museum, Thyssen Museum, Contemporary Art Museum (CAC), the Russian Museum ( from San Petersburg) and the Pompidou Museum and many more.

A very special place….

“The only expressionist museum in Spain”, so labels Jorge Rando, the owner, curator and painter, his privat museum. He has strong links to many European countries and was just recently with his paintings in a great show in China. He also has strong links to Germany. When I visited the first time I saw an exhibition of paintings of Käthe Kollwitz, one of the most known German female artists of the 20th century.

This time the visite gave the chance to see a wide spectrum of the works of Jorge Rando, exhibited in 5 or 6 showrooms.

The museum is situated in the yet not so developed and posh areas from Málaga (which adds to its charme!) and has a rich cultural life of its own. Its definitely worth a visit and worth to check out the cultural program!!!!

I visited the museum, which was founded 2015, for the second time. If you are looking for a place of art that also gives some room to contemplate, this is your place! Great atmosphere, very interesting exhibition, no entrance fee! And if you love art books: a long wall full of this treasure in the Library! Sit down and browse the books! Museum Jorge Rando!

Look “Beyond the Horizon” in Marbella

This week I visited another fantastic exhibition in Marbella. The Gallery Isolina Arbulu , one of the treasure in Marbellas gallery world is worth to be discovered. Till end of March Isolina Arbulu is showing a very fine and silente exhibition – a combination of photos and sculptors that are in a great dialog with each other. The photos are taken during her activity as a consultant in the poorest regions of the world by ANGÉLICA ARBULU. Angélica tries to show the beauty in rather isolated places that don’t attract attention on the first glance. A wonderful match with theses photos are the taking sculptures by Málaga artist STELLA KAMAZÓN. Built from recycled materials the figures make a great link to the geographical areas where the photos come from. Stella shows nearly faceless figures which are lost in an other isolated world, the world of technique, phone and internet.

I was already taken by this wonderful combination in the entrance hall – such a great dialog between these two art works!

Here is a small choice of the art works to be seen!

The atmosphere of the gallery is very inviting, situated in a beautiful workplace. It has the notion of a very private house. We were happy to have Isolina as our guide and then the gallery for ourselves after having made a telephone appointment! Its a recommendation to make an appointment to be sure you meet Isolina Arbulu in person and get the interesting information about the exhibition.

I loved the title “Beyond the Horizon” and this description very much, especially as I was also engaged with the horizon when I working on my “Desert Trip Print Series”.

That’s up in January – Exhibitions Worldwide!!!

End of the year 2019 my schedule was still rather blank – only a few days into the new year it already gets a bit crowded with exhibitions!

WORLDWIDE RELEASE. An experiment.

“THE DESERT TRIP PRINTS” Release date for Subscribers 17.01.2020, Public release 25.01.2020

The Internet offers incredible possibilities! 2019 was definitely my Internet-Work-Shop-Fan year! During one of these beautiful internet workshops – in this case “ The small art challenge” of Sergio Gomez, an artist and curator from Chicago I used my holidays in Palm Springs and the surrounding deserts to create a lovely digital series of my desert trip.

This in itself was an experiment. Finding a printer who is specialized in Fine Art Prints needed a lot of time, many trial and errors and test prints. This was another adventure. But that is done!!! Now I hold the prints in my hands, beautiful colors, wonderful paper, nice look and nice feel, printed by a very professional print shop. Offering my art worldwide with an online release now is the next experiment I am going to go for.

Special offer for my newsletter readers

A I have a special offer for my newsletter subscribers: a preview for some 4 days, to be the the first to see “The desert trip prints” and choose from this series of 11 prints, which will be published as a Limited Edition of 10 prints each painting, all hand signed and numbered by the artist. The release date for subscribers is 17th of January till the 20th of January 2020.

Saturday the 25th oh January the series will be released via my website, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn worldwide. This special offer will be available for two weeks.

If you are interested to be with the first to be informed about my new works, exhibitions and artists adventures, join my VIP email list here. Of course you can cancel it when ever you feel like it.

Paintings in Alboca Gastro, Mijas

As the restaurant will be closed from 20th of January to 4th February . My paintings will be to be seen through February and probably March too.

New York, New York! My Artist Dream comes true!

NEW YORK, NEW YORK! An artists dream comes true!

What an excellent and exciting day! At the 19th of October we crossed over by ferry from New Jersey to freezing cold New York , an adventure in itself! My husband nicely helped me to transport 16 (!) paintings and 12 frames- you cannot imagine what a large suitcase we carried around ( besides the other 4 large ones on our flight from Spain to New York). I had put down a wish this year in May in the Artist 2 Life CVP 19 program, which I attended. My wish was to present my art in New York! Not long after doing this, I was contacted by a representative of the gallery!  Life takes wonderful paths sometimes!

All the paintings were accepted but then I kept 4 and Ieft 12 of the 30×30 cm series at SAPHIRA&VENTURA GALLERY  in central Manhatten. Can you imagine, I was standing in that gallery, a dream becoming true and did not manage to separate from all of my paintings! Somehow they became my kids.


Great surprise gave me the gallery: 4 of my paintings were presented the same evening in the show ”The bonds of love” and I could be present at the opening which was well visited and even added a wonderful performance of which you here see only the mask! The exhibition is to be seen till 28th of October.What a story! My paintings will be presented in several shows over the year 2020! Super exciting!
PS If you would like to know about the Internet program of Art2life CVP19 let me know! I did enjoy it very much and it inspired my art enormously!

 

If you are interested in my paintings , now in New York, here are some of them (more you will find here Small formats – kleine Formate – pequeños formatos)

NEWS after a busy summer – un verano occupado – nach einem intensivem Sommer

A very productive summer! More than 20 paintings finished!

Looking back: This summer seems to have been very intensive. Family visits, expositions, art fairs, a lot of traveling and CVP 19.

Time by time an artist needs some new input besides visiting museums and exhibitions  or looking for inspiration in the surrounding. So I decided to embark on an internet course which is called: “Creative Visionary Path”. Nicholas Wilton and his team delivered a workshop that was impressive with all its wealth of information, practical examples and personal attention that was given,  despite having hundreds of attendees. I really was impressed by the quality of teaching and organization.

It has been a very good, highly interesting and very supporting experience!!!! Three months (and more) full of information, explanation and videos, life calls, painting, artist community and a lot of experimenting and learning! I am still digesting the information I got and the techniques that I experimented with and the experience I made. In one sentence: it was all worth it. If you want to know, just let me know via Email

If you want to have a short insight into my working style, have a look here:

 

Creating while traveling – a special challenge

As I am not a special friend of water color (quite honestly: I don’t know how to handle them) neither of crayons, I have not done a lot for my art practice, when traveling. From CVP something special I took out for me (besides many good other things) was working with sketchbook and gouache. Normally I am not a fan of neither the one nor the other –

Artist studio on a hotel table

this has changed. I was very happy while traveling to have the gouache colors with me, who are a bit like acrylic but make working so much easier when traveling – and so much cleaner. So I could go on with my 30×30 cm boards even in a hotel or in a friends house.  And it probably will serve me again for our next journey which is already planed!

 

 

 

 

The harvest: More than 25 new paintings!

More than 20 panels, all 30×30 cm, (partly wood, carton or hard board) I have been working on. A small choice I will show you here:

If you want to see all the 25 panels that were done since May, tapp here.  You will find a (nearly) full overview over the works.

Picassos birthday 18.10.19 – next art event in Málaga!

In October, accompanying Picassos birthday, a lot of events will take place in Málaga. One of it will be an exhibition of Picasso inspired art works in the Galeria Javier Román, which is only some steps away from the birth place of Picasso at the Plaza de la Merced.

I painted a Picasso inspired painting for this show – as well did my artist friend from Costa del Arte Collective, Anouk Slegers. In preparation for this painting I visited the Picasso museum (which is worth while a visit!) and studied some books featuring his life and his work. As always, the more you learn about an artist, the more interesting he gets. I was especially fascinated by his blue and pink period – no wonder, I love pink and you will find it in many of my paintings! And his paintings of animals fascinated very much, especially the cats – partly in deconstruction ways and ever so expressive! So I was inspired by these most admired items! Come and see! The exhibition will be open till 18th of November – while I will be still on the other side of the big sea!

This is just a little part of the painting….

The cat who didn’t catch the bird.

Next Art Event in Germany! CONTEMPORARY ART RUHR !

Now, that the summer comes to an end, the next events are already set.

Some of my art will travel and be presented by “Javier Roman Galeria” Málaga, in October in Essen, Germany, at the ART RUHR – an art fair that focuses on innovative  art. Unfortunately  I can not attend the show, – I will be in the USA  meanwhile.

 

The fair will be situated in the beautiful Zeche Zollverein – such a pity I cannot see it and YOU all! Its quite exiting for me! While my paintings travel to the C.A.R., I will be visiting some New Yorker Galleries that I know through Instagram and I am curious to see them in reality.

Planning the next exhibition with the Costa del Arte Collective in Nerja!

The Costa del Arte Collective is applying to have a show in Nerja next year March! Keep you are fingers crossed, that we manage to get into this very beautiful communal space! I will keep you posted.

I hope you make it to the CAR in Essen, when you are in Germany! Or hopefully we can meet in Nerja! You will gain interesting impressions any way and who knows, maybe a original art work for your soul and home! If you are interested in one of the 30×30 cm art works that I am showing here, let me know!

Have a good start back into the second part of the year!

I see black – Ich seh schwarz – Veo negro

Lately I started with a lot of experiments – time by time an artist needs some freshness in her/his head and new inspiration. Finding new ways, collect new experience, has to question and expand her/his style. See some of the experiments here.

I give me a rather hard time, as I try to prepare for quite some traveling lying ahead of us. To stay tuned in my painting praxis I decided to take a sketchbook. I am not a great friend of sketchbooks and do not really a praxis. I like big formats and acrylic paint – that is quite a dirty job and asks for a lot of material. My trial with water color nhttps://artgoppellandhampel.com/?p=3384&preview=trueever gave me any satisfaction. So now I try how works Gouache. Quite fine, I can say after my first trials.

I love the old farmhouses in Andalusia, with all there add-ons and partly deconstructions they seem to tell a story of live. So I was fascinated by this one near Tarifa. The dog I fall in love with on my walk at the Open Studios Gaucín. You will find a photo of her there. If you are interested in this art walk, read more here.

My passion in painting is color. I could say: my painting is all about color. So now I went on a diet. A strong challenge to brake familiar habits. The sweet Lana, the dog above,  belongs to this series.

Some of the paintings are on wooden board. It gives a lot of possibilities to be mal treated. You can cut it, scratch it, work with hard tools on it. It invites all kind of spatulas. Some of this treatments a canvas would not be so happy with. Other experiments are on paper DIN A 4. Somehow a much smoother process.

Normally I love to work with rather bold and vibrant colours. So the challenge lies in tamed colours. This ones are not quite tamed, the motto was more: Go wild….

This are my experiments with a very reduce color palette. A lot of interesting new experiences through diet! Sometimes I feel very hungry for my familiar food 🙂 Wonder what comes next.

Next comes an exhibition in Marbella in which I and the members of Costa del Arte Collective will be taking part.  More than 90 artists will show there work in the Avendida del Mar – that’s in the center down to the sea. Opening the 20th of June at 19:30 to 23:00  till 23rd of June, open from 16:30 to 23:00 hours.

Very much hoping to see you there!

Memories of Exhibiting at the 10th Art Walk Cómpeta in 2018!/ ¡Recuerdos de exponiendo en el 10. Art Walk Cómpeta en 2018!

This was my first experience with exhibiting at an Art Walk in Spain! I had some experience with Open Studios as long as I had my studio in Bonn. I love this kind of exhibition because it gives so much value to the visitors and artists! Great way to connect with art, artists, art lovers and a village or area of a town! It was a great experience for visitors and artists!

Esta fue mi primera experiencia con la exposición en Art Walk en España! Tenía cierta experiencia con Open Studios, siempre que tuviera mi estudio en Bonn. Me encanta este tipo de exposición porque le da mucho valor a los visitantes y artistas. ¡Una excelente manera de conectar con el arte, los artistas, los amantes del arte y un pueblo o área de una ciudad! Fue una gran experiencia para visitantes y artistas.

Getting ready, transportation of a lot of paintings, preparing the room that I shared with the photographer Nikki de Gruchy, meeting many fellow artists, for  four days receiving a lot of visitors from different countries and many good friends, walking through the narrow streets and on the steep stairs of Cómpeta:   what a lot of impressions to take in!  Now looking back I can say, it was a great event and I am very happy I was a part of it! And very lucky that I had a lot of support! Many thanks to Lieuwke Loth and the team to making this Art Walk Cómpeta possible! 

Preparándose, transporte de una gran cantidad de pintura, preparando la habitación que compartí con la fotógrafa Nikki de Gruchy, conociendo a muchos artistas, para cuatro dias recibiendo muchos visitantes de diferentes países y buenos amigos, caminando por las calles estrechas y en las empinadas escaleras de Cómpeta: ¡cuántas impresiones! Ahora mirando hacia atrás puedo decir que es un gran evento y estoy mucha suerte que podría asistir, mucha suerte, ¡eso tuvo mucho apoyo!¡Muchas gracias a Lieuwke Loth y al equipo por hacer este Art Walk Cómpeta posible!

Intensive Vorbereitung, der Transport von vielen und auch großen Bildern, das Herrichten des Raumes, den ich mit der Fotografin Nikki de Gruchy teilte, in dem sich Stühle und Tische stapelten, Bilder aufhängen, eine große Anzahl Kunstkollegen kennen zu lernen, Besucher aus unterschiedlichen Ländern empfangen und gute Freunde, durch die engen Gassen und über die steilen Treppen von Cómpeta zu wandern – wirklich viele Eindrücke, die ich gesammelt habe. Im Rückblick kann ich sagen: Es war eine großartige Veranstaltung und ich bin glücklich, dass ich dabei sein konnte! Und sehr dankbar, dass ich so gute Unterstützung hatte! Ganz großen Dank an Lieuwke Loth und ihr Team, dass sie diesen fantastischen Art Walk Cómpeta möglich gemacht hat!

Art with the Scent of Rum/Arte con el Aroma del Ron

Coming home from the USA we rushed and packed the car with paintings again. I am participating in a group exhibition in the east of Malága, in Salobreña. It takes place in a stunning venue, in a Sugar Factory, huge place with lots of barrels of rum….I am very happy that all members of  our new founded artist groupCosta Del Arte Collective” – Annabel Keatley, Anouk Slegers and Lieuwke Loth- are exhibiting there as well!

Al llegar a casa desde EE. UU., Corrimos y empacamos el coche con pinturas nuevamente. Participo en una exposición colectiva en el este de Malága, en Salobreña. Se lleva a cabo en un lugar deslumbrante, en una fábrica de azúcar, un lugar enorme con muchos barriles de ron ….

Exhibiting at the Art Walk Cómpeta / Exponer en el Art Walk Compéta

Getting ready, transportation of a lot of paintings, preparing the room that I shared with the photographer Nikki de Gruchy, meeting many fellow artists, for  four days receiving a lot of visitors from different countries and many good friends, walking through the narrow streets and on the steep stairs of Cómpeta:   what a lot of impressions to take in!  Now looking back I can say, it was a great event and I am very happy I was a part of it! And very lucky that I had a lot of support! Many thanks to Lieuwke Loth and the team to making this Art Walk Cómpeta possible! Now already looking forward to the Open Studios of Gaucín!

Preparándose, transporte de una gran cantidad de pintura, preparando la habitación que compartí con la fotógrafa Nikki de Gruchy, conociendo a muchos artistas, para cuatro dias recibiendo muchos visitantes de diferentes países y buenos amigos, caminando por las calles estrechas y en las empinadas escaleras de Cómpeta: ¡cuántas impresiones! Ahora mirando hacia atrás puedo decir que es un gran evento y estoy mucha suerte que podría asistir, mucha suerte, ¡eso tuvo mucho apoyo!¡Muchas gracias a Lieuwke Loth y al equipo por hacer este Art Walk Cómpeta posible!
¡Ahora comienza la preparación para los Open Studios de Gaucín!

Intensive Vorbereitung, der Transport von vielen und auch großen Bildern, das Herrichten des Raumes, den ich mit der Fotografin Nikki de Gruchy teilte, in dem sich Stühle und Tische stapelten, Bilder aufhängen, eine große Anzahl Kunstkollegen kennen zu lernen, Besucher aus unterschiedlichen Ländern empfangen und gute Freunde, durch die engen Gassen und über die steilen Treppen von Cómpeta zu wandern – wirklich viele Eindrücke, die ich gesammelt habe. Im Rückblick kann ich sagen: Es war eine großartige Veranstaltung und ich bin glücklich, dass ich dabei sein konnte! Und sehr dankbar, dass ich so gute Unterstützung hatte! Ganz großen Dank an Lieuwke Loth und ihr Team, dass sie diesen fantastischen Art Walk Cómpeta möglich gemacht hat!
Jetzt geht’s zur Vorbereitung auf die Ausstellung in den Open Studios von Gaucín!
