Open Sunday: No Promises, No Demands


Muntean/Rosenblum, Paloma Varga Weisz, Tobias Zielony

Info: We are delighted to present the three artists exhibition No Promises, No Demands with works by artists Muntean/Rosenblum, Paloma Varga Weisz and Tobias Zielony, whom we greatly admire since many years. The conceptual figurative paintings by Muntean/Rosenblum (both *1962) offer a profound exploration of the image of youth and the history of painting beyond gender and generation. They became known for their complex paintings of young people, which combine classical, figurative painting with text inscriptions. (…) The anthropomorphic figures of sculptor Paloma Varga Weisz (*1966) bear witness to childlike imagination and fantasy. The artist draws on an inner archive of collected impressions and memories of things, images and objects. Her sculptural work is imbued with a sense of rapture and tranquillity and is characterised by its precise realisation as well as its ability to evoke emotions, stimulate reflection and transcend time and place. (…) Tobias Zielony’s (*1973) photographic works show marginalised young people in public spaces. His images with a documentary element provide an unadulterated and unfiltered insight into the lives of young people. (…)
