Girls! Girls! Girls!
�.

Werner Berges often executed his works in cardboard, fiber pen, and foil. His chosen subjects (the female figure) are removed from their original contexts, and combined with circles, grids, stripes of color, and lines in ways that were reminiscent of mass production. The works become "playful pictorial abbreviations" supercharged with highly vibrant, dynamic colors.

Helwaser Gallery is pleased to present historically important works from influential German pop artist, Werner Berges years in Berlin. Visit our link in bio to view the full exhibition.

Red, white, and blue for Memorial Day.
🔴⚪️🔵
Werner Berges came into his signature pop art style while living in 1960s and 1970s Berlin. The glossy, prosperous climate of post-war Germany informed the specific aesthetic of his vibrant paintings of women.

"The manner in which Werner Berges gave artistic expression to the spirit of life in the sixties is in a fascinating way neither French nor American, but German. Precisely in the sense of what at the core constitutes being “German” since the age of Romanticism–that artists envisage a better world, utopia, paradise on earth. And in this manner Berges’s naked women too are ultimately the granddaughters of the bathers by the Moritzburg Lakes that the “Brücke” artists turned into their real dream figures at the beginning of the century." —Florian Illies, After the Vanities: An Observation about Werner Berges.

05/19/2020

Helwaser Gallery is pleased to present a new digital online exhibition of work by pioneering German Pop artist Werner Berges (b. 1941, Cloppenburg, Germany). This is the gallery’s first collaboration with the artist's estate, and the show will run for a month in our online viewing room, from May 19 - June 19. The exhibition features twenty distinctive works by Berges, made available exclusively online for this period.

.�
New Awakenings celebrates works that span the late 1960s to the early 1970s and examines a crucial period in Berges' practice, as well as his contributions to the growth of the German Pop Art movement. Characterized by flat, graphic, and vibrant depictions of women posing in groups or alone, Berges' works drew from the formal aesthetics of mass media and advertising, which became ubiquitous in German life in the 60s and 70s.

Anton Ginzburg: Viewing mode closes today. We explored the past four years of his practice, examined evolutions in his process, investigated his use of the color theories of the Eastern European avant-garde, and uncovered constructivist artworks from the 1930's that inform his practice.

This presentation was the first in our new digital series, Working from Home, in which we employ a diverse assemblage of features including interviews, archival imagery, and more to provide insights into the practice and processes of our artists. Each exhibition will be live for two weeks. Stay tuned for our next digital deep dive, coming soon!

SWIPE to spot the progression. . . In the series 3i_SUN_STARE, Ginzburg incorporates the geometric shape of his earlier VIEW series (swipe right to see an example). In speaking about the series, Ginzburg references the camera technique of "zooming out", where the lens reveals a wider narrative within a singular frame. In the same way, 3i_SUN_STARE uses the form of VIEW almost as a kind of cinematic syntax to construct a different "scene" altogether.

Anton Ginzburg: Viewing mode runs online from May 1-15 and is the first presentation in our new digital series, Working from Home. Explore the exhibition via our link in bio, where you can view, inquire on, and collect artworks online.

The artist is present! Anton Ginzburg is known for his immersive practice which draws from architecture, color theory, and the ideals of the Eastern European historical avant garde. As art historian, Owen Duffy writes, "His work laments the lost possibilities of a utopian abstraction, and proposes a hopeful future for painting, full of vitality and breath."

#AntonGinzburg "The abstract paintings are called HAY STACKS. Language gives them meaning, even if to mislead... The artist is practiced in the vocabularies of 20th century modernism and his works allude to their turns of phrases, without quoting directly. He breaks apart the traditional sentence structures of modernism, incorporating them into new patterns and rhythms, to participate fluently in contemporary art dialogues."
— Katya Tylevich, in Points of Entry, essay for the catalog of the two-person exhibition Anton Ginzburg and Dasha Shishkin: Partial Eclipse at Fridman Gallery, NY (October 20 - November 20, 2019)

In 2019, Anton Ginzburg began integrating the forms that he had developed over his practice into new series of works, entitled 3i_SUN_STARE and HAY STACKS. These forms begin to serve as recurring motifs within his compositions, creating an established visual vocabulary throughout the respective series. The paintings visually allude not just to spatial dynamics, but also to the structure of non-linear narratives.

Learn more about Ginzburg's process and the story behind these HAY STACKS via the link in our bio. Viewing mode runs online from May 1- 15 and is part of our digital series, Working from Home.

Now Open! Anton Ginzburg: Viewing mode explores the artist's deep investigation into the formal methodologies of the Russian avant-garde. In particular, Ginzburg explored the color theories of Constructivist pioneer Mikhail Matyushin. Using these modernist theories as a framework, Ginzburg analyzes and deconstructs the act of viewing itself, and the relationship between the viewer and the object on view.

Viewing mode runs through May 15 and is the first in our Working from Home content series which uses digital storytelling to realize new histories and works by the gallery's artists. Explore via link in bio. �

Richard Fleischner: Witness Mark has been featured on @artnet: "Though visitors will find nary a figurative work in “Witness Mark,” Richard Fleischner’s first solo show at Helwaser Gallery in New York, the human body is quietly everywhere in the proportions and arrangements of the works on view.

This isn’t accidental.

“Fleischner believes in absolute truths based on human proportions that can and should be utilized in the making of art, and that have shaped many of the great cultural artifacts in human history,” says Jennifer Gross, who penned the exhibition’s catalogue essay."

About Helwaser Gallery

Established in Paris in 1986, Helwaser Gallery specializes in Post-war and Contemporary art, featuring seminal artists such as Alexander Calder, Helen Frankenthaler, Adolph Gottlieb, and Yayoi Kusama. The gallery was originally located in rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore, Paris, and initiated noteworthy exhibitions, including a retrospective on Jean Dubuffet (1996), curated in partnership with Galerie Pascal Lansberg. Other exhibitions include Rencontre de Personnages (An Encounter between Figures), which presented a rich selection of French cubist masters, notably George Braque, Jean Metzinger, and Pablo Picasso (2004). In 2008, Helwaser Gallery marked its inaugural relocation to New York with the exhibition Red, which brought together Post-War artists, such as Hans Hofmann, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

In 2019, Helwaser Gallery will open its remodeled Upper East Side gallery space with a public exhibition program. The program will promote emerging and established contemporary artists, working across the mediums of painting, sculpture, and cinema. The exhibition program centers on national histories and geographies, and aims to connect with significant historical cultural movements. This focus on contemporary projects continues to be paired with a yearly exhibition devoted to post-war and contemporary art, linking the history of the gallery with its new curatorial vision. More details on participating artists will be announced in Winter 2018.

Helwaser Gallery has participated in the following art fairs: The Armory Show, Art Miami, Palm Beach Art Fair, The Salon Art + Design, Paris Art + Design and Brafa (Brussels), Art Southampton, and others.
