Markus Linnenbrink will be exhibiting in his neighborhood of Bushwick for the first time, showing his large-‐scale painting MEINWILDEHERZ and other recent work. MEINWILDEHERZ embodies layers of emotion, memory and a passion for the gestural abstraction of the mid-‐20th century Abstract Expressionists.
Born in Germany, Markus Linnenbrink has exhibited his work extensively at galleries and museums all around the world. Currently based in the USA, Linnenbrink works from a studio in Brooklyn and effortlessly moves between three dimensional, site-‐speciTic and painting-‐based practices and projects. He notably utilizes resin as a core material -‐ in tandem with his characteristic oozing and streaked hues of vivid color, or similarly-‐manipulated shades of sober greys and blacks. Eagerly sought-‐after, examples of Linnenbrink‘s work are now housed in the permanent collections of prestigious institutions, including San Francisco‘s Museum of Modern Art, the Herzliya Museum of Art, in Israel, Ucla Hammer, in L.A and Kassel‘s Museum Neue Galerie. Linnenbrink is represented by Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe Gallery in NYC and a solo exhibition of recent works will open at the gallery on Thursday 4 September 2014.
ODETTA is a new gallery created and run by artist Ellen Hackl Fagan, a recent transplant to Bushwick. The gallery will present the works of contemporary artists focusing on Color Theory, Minimalism, Glyphs, Buddha Mind, Fluxus, History, Humor, Psychedelia, Ephemera, Science, Math and Music.
