Hannes Michanek, new oil paintings
Jessi Schäfer
We are pleased to present the third solo exhibition by Frankfurt-based artist Hannes Michanek, titled “Against logic extremists
(Like the way dreams are supposed to be)” with new oil paintings. A monumental diptych by the artist, with figurative representations, constitutes the center of the exhibition. This central piece is peppered with numerous details that only gradually open up to the
viewer in the course of prolonged observation. The complex compositions are, which is characteristic of the artist's working method, nested within a painting and built up like a collage, and yet results in a harmonious whole. Hannes Michanek was born 1979 in Kristianstad / Sweden and studied between 2007 and 2012 at Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste (Städelschule), FFM, Germany under Prof. Michael Krebber. His works are e.g. in the permanent collections of the MMK/ FFM, Museum Wiesbaden, EZB / FFM, Commerzbank / FFM, Dekabank FFM, as well as in numerous international private collections.
