VERNISSAGE 07 SEPTEMBER 2014 / 16:00 - 18:00

Occasionally, we discover a young artist that we would like to present to our audience right away out of pure enthusiasm. This is why Deweer Gallery initiates Breeze: a series of recurring exhibitions in which we will present surprising, young contemporary artists we have come into contact with in the international circuit.

This first edition of Breeze will feature works by Gabriele Beveridge, Buck Ellison and Michael Seidner.

With realistic yet enigmatic works, Buck Ellison pushes the limits of photography as a form of representation. Experimenting with stereotypical approaches taken from all kinds of photographic genres, he creates fascinating, new images which do not reveal all their meaning and critical potential at once.

Buck Ellison was born in San Francisco, US, in 1987, and now lives in Frankfurt am Main and San Francisco. He studied at the Columbia University, New York and the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main. His works were recently shown at the Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt,  The Armory Show with Ratio 3, and Clarence Mews, London. It was discussed in the Flash Art issue of May 2014.

Read as the result of painterly acts and decisions, the paintings of Michael Seidner reveal a rare intensity and concentration. Fundamentally expressive through gesture and paint and the direct outcome of a physical and mental process, they stay with the viewer long after he’s been confronted with them.

Michael Seidner was born in Erlangen, Germany, in 1985 and lives in Nürnberg and Frankfurt. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, Nürnberg and currently studies at the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main. He had a solo show at Neues Museum Nürnberg in 2012 and participated at group shows in a.o. Kunstverein Nürnberg, Goethe-Institut Lyon and Kunstverein Marburg.

In her installations, Gabriele Beveridge turns found images into icons. Images and objects which seem to testify of holding on to something while loosing it, interact to form a poetical dialogue in which the motives of ephemerality, matter and beauty recur.

Gabriele Beveridge was born in Hong Kong in 1985 and lives in London, UK. She recently showed her work in The Zabludowicz Collection, London, in Van Horbourg, Zürich, and in Outpost, Norwich, UK.
