Braun-Falco Gallery is pleased to present JUNGLE - the gallery’s fourth exihibition by FELIX WEINOLD.

Some foreshadows already let expecting it: Felix Weinold comes back to classic painting. For many years the appropriation artist used print technology as his major media, and now following some intermediated hints of overpainted photographies his lust on self hand made painting became overwhelming.

With JUNGLE, Felix created a series of canvases in which arabsque-like excresences and amorphous platelets form intertwined three-dimensionally appearing structureful rooms. Even a botanical element might resemble a natural origin his paintings are by far more abstract than figurative. In particular his ductus of multicolored paint on a single brush mark points to his joy to let the paint run and mingle on the horizontally or vertically orientated background before the more birghtly colored networks appear in the front leaving soft shadows on the background increasing the illusion of depth. From distance a Tromple-L’oeil-like effect might be evoced although a closer look offers the gestic nature of the paintings. In JUNGLE painting is not used to create illusionations, moreover it is made to recognize the brush strokes in reminiscence to the age of Enlightenment: Look here, that’s the way it works. Enjoy the illustration oscillating between figurative and absract, but don’t look so fucking romantic….as Brecht’s would say.
