»A poem and its inner picture as a reflection and a visual inspiration at the same time.« Jürgen Partenheimer

Häusler Contemporary Munich is pleased to present a first exclusive insight into Jürgen Partenheimer’s current body of work »One Hundred Poets«. It is based on the artist’s personal selection of 100 poems, visualized in his unique imagery. He thus points to the equal relevance of different artistic genres in his oeuvre while simultaneously paying tribute to his favourite poets.

Jürgen Partenheimer (*1947, Munich) is known for his contentual interpretation of abstraction, which he calls »metaphysical realism«. It finds its expression in a complex oeuvre of drawing, painting, sculpture and installation. Furthermore, collectors and admirers of his work are familiar with his affinity to poetry and literature and also with the artist’s own writings. Partenheimer’s project »One Hundred Poets«, a dialogue between visual art and poetry, will be presented in our exhibition for the first time. The group of works are an indirect homage to Japanese artist Hokusai who at the beginning of the 19th century dedicated his work to a similar project based on a renowned anthology of Japanese poetry.
