Terril. Pierre Alechinsky

 

Pierre Alechinsky was born in Brussels in 1927. Painter and engraver whose style is gestural, vigorous, close to abstract expressionism, but with elements what approach it to surrealism. He was one of the leading members of the Cobra group, founded in 1948 by Asger Jorn, Karl Appel, Christian Dotremont, Constant and Corneille, among other artists. After the dissolution of Cobra, in 1951, he traveled to Paris where he studied etching techniques. In 1955 a trip to Japan makes a change in his career and begins to surround his paintings with margin notes, filling their works with parallel narratives. Some of his recurring themes are oriental traits, children's drawings and cave paintings. His work is included in collections such as the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid.

 

Selbts Autorretrato. A.R. PENK.

 

Behind ARPenk it is Ralf Winkler (Dresden, 1939) a representative name of the German Neo-Expressionism, that moved to Germany in 1980. Since then his work, which includes paintings, sculptures and objects, was present at the Venice Biennale, Documenta in Kassel and the most important museums and galleries around the world. It combines the simplifying abstraction and analytical thinking and in an attempt to reflect the intricate structures of today's world, creates social and psychological frameworks of great complexity with a mixture of expressionism and primitive art. Ralf Winkler adopted his pseudonym A.R. Penck as a tribute to a famous geologist and specialist in the glacial period.
