KETELEER GALLERY is very pleased to announce its first solo exhibtion with German artist Rebekka Löffler.
Rebekka Löffler (Freiburg im Breisgau, 1985) grew up in the Black Forest region near Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany. She received her master’s degree at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe in 2012, and was a resident at the HISK (Higher Institute for Fine Arts) in Ghent, Belgium in 2016-2017.
Rebekka Löffler’s paintings explore the interface between the explainable and intangible aspects of being. They demonstrate her reflection and response to the conditions and occurrences of life. Painful or rousing, subtle or sublime moments of life evoke the urgency to be shaped in all their states of matter and to be coloured in all shades in order to grasp and frame a cleared and decipherable image of life—an image that wants to question the representation of reality, and depict a multifaceted and fluid perception of life.
Löffler's works explore themes that are connected to personal experiences such as language and identity, moments of realization and shifting perception, moments of movement and breakout, the role of women, the meaning and definition of land and interpersonal interaction and relationships. Her reflections on how to perceive a multi-layered and constantly changing world influences the formal aspects of her paintings. The artist is particularly interested in painterly means that influence the perception of the image, especially those which cause movement, rhythm, and a complex spatial arrangement in a painting.
