Malerei und Foto-Übermalung
In his exibition “Painting and Foto Overpainting” Harald Frackmann presents pictorial positions which show his multifaceted and longstanding work in small oil canvasses and painted over photographies. His work is set between abstraction and figuration. The beholder is compelled to concentrate in order to recognize surprisingly contours and landscapes in the often dark but colorful pictures.
