Returning for his second solo exhibition in New York, German artist, Christian Hellmich, will present a group of new works at Lehmann Maupin Gallery entitled "The Array/Transfer-Domino." Since his 2006 show, "Arrangement," a group of paintings depicting interiors, exteriors and arrangements of architectural perceptions all emphasizing form, texture, and geometry, Hellmich has endeavored to further explore the roles of painting and architecture within the context of his unique process. This exploration is conveyed in his exhibition titled, "The Array/Transfer-Domino," opening 14 January at the gallery's Chelsea location. As Hellmichs' previous works depict definitions between an interior and an exterior, viewers will find in this second exhibition a broadening of these definitions. The role of architecture remains one focal point of Hellmich's subject matter, though a myriad of topics and imagery flow throughout the works.
Hellmich's new works reveal a certain grade of concreteness and representation through his process, in which he strives towards a decisive moment and a formulation of definitions in the exactness of the vague, appropriating his artistic strategies. The two-part title of Hellmich's upcoming exhibition, "The Array/Transfer-Domino," is drawn from influences he finds in many different pictorial sources, whether it be news, advertisements, entertainment, literature, or any other form of culture.
In informatics an Array is seen as an arrangement of similar elements through a determined method. The term Transfer-Domino can be seen as a constant search for the next tile, but also refers to the personnel carousel found in professional sports, for example. The exhibition title demonstrates the way Hellmich works and where his interests lie: in communicating through definitions and terms, and the exchange process of these terms, all of which, pertinent in this body of work.(read less)
