Galerie Isa 9 presents a solo exhibition of German painter and sculptor, Christian Achenbach.
Grounding his practice in the major movements of 20th century art history, Achenbach uses the lens of postmodernism as a prism to conjure his arresting landscapes. The artist intelligently repositions and reforms established languages and ideas, reframing them in a fresh, new context.
Achenbach’s creative process lends itself to the world of musical composition where the multiplicity of violently clashing colours and shapes emphasises shifts of tonality. This evokes a materiality of sound that reveals Achenbach’s own love of music – a passion shared with the late artist Kandinsky, who once claimed that he saw colours when listening to notes, what we understand today as a form of synesthesia.
