Xie Lei

Info: Xie Lei chose painting through personal conviction, as it opens up a pathway towards a language capable of expressing his sensory universe and a field of experimentation that allows him to delve into the specificity of this medium in the contemporary world. His work always starts with a basis in reality before taking flight into explorations of uncertain or ambiguous realms, transformed by his imagination. Most of his paintings refer to murky or disturbing situations, discreetly linked to literary or cinematographic memories or drawn from a profound crucible of personal emotions. His work dwells on the complexity of events and situations and above all the ambiguity and tensions they foster. His recent painting intrigues through their exploration of a world in-between sleep and death, torment, and eroticism. The colours are somber yet shift towards the luminous and the powerful. (…) Location: Caprii, Orangeriestr. 6, 40213 Düsseldorf.

Where melodies dwell

Federico Herrero

Info: For his eighth solo exhibition at Sies + Höke, Federico Herrero presents a series of paintings alongside a predominant in-situ wall-painting on the gallery’s ceiling made up of his emblematic brightly colored geometric compositions. Known for his vibrant organic shapes, the Costa Rican artist understands poetry as visual language and seeks to find art in all realms of life. By creating abstract landscapes that are inextricably linked to nature and beings, and by bringing his work outside of the canvas, Herrero aims to dissolve the boundaries between art and everyday life. Through his large-scale paintings on canvas as well as on walls, floors, ceilings, or windows, he extracts vibrations, movements, and sounds from shapes and colors, infusing musicality and new meaning into the spaces he inhabits.
