With a new series of paintings now on display at Alexandra Grass Gallery in Bielefeld, Marco Wagner challenges the notion that childhood memories can be a source of comfort or even represent an ideal, elusive past.  Piece by piece, Marco has worked for the last few years through his upbringing in rural Bavaria and produced a cycle of work critically examining regional themes.

In these new works, photo-realistic images are effaced with distorted faces, blurred eyes, and overwritten edges—something like memory itself.  Nostalgia is transmuted into an atmosphere of anxiety and oppression. Marco writes, “Growing up in a village left a strong impression on me.  The countryside, the people and their daily lives constricted by tradition, religion, and hard work fascinate and frighten me to this day.”

 


Curator and gallerist Bero Beinlich has assembled these new works from Marco and another artist, Roman Klonek, for a joint exhibition, “The Daily Moods of Marco Wagner & Roman Klonek,” with support from Moodberry. The exhibit runs through March 28th and you are invited to see it.
