LARMgalleri is pleased to present SHADOWS a solo exhibition by German artist Christian Achenbach. Achenbach’s work is equally inspired by contemporary pop culture as well as from the shadows of the past, especially from the development of modernism: Cubism, Futurism, Constructivism and Expressionism. In a concurrent and overlapping existence of geometric shapes and symbolic painting Achenbach surprises the viewer by creating balance amongst the visual chaos. Primarily a painter and more recently a sculptor, Achenbach is also a musician and many of his works are inspired by musical motives, influenced by both punk and jazz.
Christian Achenbach (b. 1978) lives and works in Berlin. His work has gained international attention for its powerfully dynamic nature. Recent solo and group exhibitions include amongst many other Kunstraum, Düsseldorf, Sexauer Gallery, Berlin, Kastrupgaard Collection, Vendsyssel Museum of Art, Städtisches Museum, Engen and Museum der bildenden Künste, Leipzig. SHADOWS is Christian Achenbach’s fourth solo exhibition with LARMgalleri.
