Anton Markus Pasing/ 16.12.22 – 24.02.23

Pasing's works are mostly narratively charged and speculative, addressing personal themes as well as complex social and theoretical issues, large world contexts, and incidental events of daily life and its invisible rituals.

Science, society and philosophy inspire his hybrid spatial inventions and concepts. Digital drawing allies itself in his work with Romantic and Renaissance motifs. The canon of themes and motifs in his paintings preferably combines landscape and object to create allegories of loneliness, love and emotion. Melancholy and hyper-technical fantasy combine to create surreal and sometimes paradoxical scenarios.

In some of his "digital paintings", absoluteness and forlornness face each other without giving information to each other and certainly not to the viewer. 

Since 2003, Pasing has held various chairs, including at the TU-Darmstadt, the Kunsthochschule Kiel and Texas A&M University in the USA. Since 2004 he has been a full professor at the "Peter Behrens School of Architecture in Düsseldorf". He worked for many years as an illustrator for "Die Zeit" and his work has been exhibited internationally, from Korea to Italy and the USA. We are pleased to be able to show the former scholarship holder of the Villa Massimo and master student of the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with previously unexhibited works.
